Man Builds Slim Treehouse in Mount Fuji

This post contains affiliate links.

This is a slim treehouse built by a carpenter with a passion for treehouses in Mount Fuji, Japan.

This is an area that’s popular for vacations so rent and housing is normally very expensive here which makes the treehouse even better, right?

Yuichi Takeuchi, the builder, created it for a friend who wanted to have a second home in Fujiyoshida, which is near Mount Fuji.

Fortunately, he was able to arrange a 10 year lease on this land to build the wonderful treehouse you’re about to see. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    does this harm the tree?

    The treehouse is cute but not practical. Where would bathe, store food, heat and cool the space and use the restroom? My other issue is no power and sleeping in sleeping bags can become uncomfortable over time. I was also wondering if the build was suitable for the tree as it is very difficult to build a treehouse properly.

    This is a vacation house. Clearly, it is used more in the style of a permanent tent storing the camping gear. Japan has a temperate and damp climate, so having a place off the ground and already set up for shelter would be ideal. Sleeping bags are fine for short periods and warmer than standard bedding for unheated places. I find I settle into mine best after a couple of nights when I’ve adjusted to it. They take up less room in the car when they need to be taken home for maintenance, or security. Or just light to carry on the train along with a rucksack.
    Pretty building of the old-fashioned honest workman style. I can see this working well in other places

    I love the little chair and cooker. Nice to see the trapdoor close the ladder off. And a pulley! I was worried about a “bucket and huck it” for…ahem…night soil, but I see that one could easily and securely lower a peat pot (tucked into the closet) for delivery to a humanure bin rather than trying to wrestle it down the ladder.
