A teahouse too high

If you are ever in the city of Chino, in Nagano Prefecture—which can get quite foggy—you simply must visit architect Terunobu Fujimori's teahouse on stilts. The structure's name is Takasugi-an (高過庵)—literally "Too-Tall Teahouse."


Peruse more pictures of Mr. Fujimori's creation here.



Sorry—no TV and no Internet access.
