A Single Cypress Trunk Supports This Storybook Treehouse

Located among the cherry trees of Hokuto, Japan, this fairytale-esque little treehouse built by Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimori offers a sweet hideaway for visitors exploring the Kiyoharu Shirakaba Museum. What sets this creation apart from the world's many other trendy tree dwellings, is its rather precarious, stunted one-legged shape, which (here's hoping) is strong enough to support the one-room structure, but not so sturdy that it won't sway during stormy weather. Inside, the warm, wooden enclave offers some lovely, flowery views and a fireplace, but not a stitch of furniture. Find a few more shots below, then check out its full write-up in an utterly adorable book called Tree Houses: Fairy Tale Castles in the Air, this way.
