This fairy-tale treehouse in Hokuto, Japan is supported by a single cypress trunk and surrounded by a bevy of cherry blossom trees. Built by architect Terunobu Fujimori for the Kiyoharu Shirakaba Museum, the charming treehouse is actually a Japanese teahouse that was built specifically for enjoying the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Fujimori designed the unique, one-legged structure to be sturdy enough to sway with the tree during stormy weather and through earthquakes. As you can see by the interior shot of the teahouse, though the outside is all fantasy, the inside is left both simple and modern.
Architect Terunobu Fujimori is known for his surreal structures which he creates using mostly natural materials like wood and stone. As Phaidon states, “In a pioneering professional career now spanning 20 years, the architect has produced two-legged teahouses suspended 20 metres above the ground; homes whose chimneys are planted with pines and whose roofs are covered in leeks and chives; and guesthouses that perch precariously atop small segments of white wall.”
Historians say Cleopatra slept in a gold mask every night to maintain her youthful skin. Supposedly these 24k gold under-eye masks will do the trick. My first time experimenting with this extravagant luxury!

I was actually surprised by the fact that there’s actually foresty trails in my area. Apparently, Michael saw a rabbit, which isn’t exotic or anything. lol I love how this like the closest thing to wildlife I’ve seen in Texas. That should tell you that I don’t travel enough in my car, but continuing. I got some shots of the young exploring sliding off mud and getting stuff stuck in his hair while I took photos. lol. be sure to check out more of photos on instagram.
