Banyan Treehouse in Japan

Although this banyan tree isn't a real tree, it doesn't make this Japanese cafe any less unique.
The tree is fabricated of concrete and is made to resemble a life-size banyan tree [Gajumaru] in Okinawa, Japan. Resting on top is the Naha Harbor Diner, which is accessible via spiral staircase on the backside. The cafe is known to specialize in 'locally grown and organic harvested foods fresh from the farm.'
Overlooking the ocean, the Naha Harbor Diner claims to offer “farm-fresh vegetables, juicy chickens and pork” and “native salts.” And as we all know, native and local foods cut down on shipping and packaging costs, reducing our carbon and plastic footprints.
