Perched high in the forest of Okinawa is a unique creation by master Japanese treehouse builder Taka. A attraction at the rustic Beach Rock resort, a popular stopover for young Japanese backpackers and those who want to get away from the ordinary for a while. The treehouse was built in 2005, and weathered a typhoon the following season.
