You’ve heard of restaurants in old train cars, restaurants beneath the water, and even igloo restaurants near the arctic circle, but what about a restaurant in a tree house?!Japan is no stranger to the thematic restaurant, the country is teeming with them, including a vampire-themed restaurant, Alice in Wonderland-themed restaurant, and even a prison cell-themed restaurant. So it should not be a surprise to anyone when a new restaurant decided to go for a more natural look and feel. This includes not only using “locally grown and organic harvested foots fresh from the farm” but also placing the restaurant in a tree.
Well, okay, it isn’t a real tree (although that would be kind of nifty, don’t you think?) but the Naha Harbor Diner in Okinawa, a pan-Asian restaurant, sits on a structure that looks like the trunk of a banyan tree. Sitting amid a number of businesses, you cannot help but notice its presence. The restaurant is 20 feet above the ground and is a destination for locals and tourists alike. To get up there you can either climb up the winding staircase or take the elevator inside the “tree trunk.” I mean, could you ever pass up the opportunity to tell your friends you ate in a tree house restaurant? I didn’t think so!
