Gajumaru Treehouse Restaurant Naha, Japan
GAJUMARU TREEHOUSE RESTAURANT Naha, Japan by Talker(m): Thu 27, January, 2022
Okinawan dining in a twenty foot tall, man-
made tree house overlooking Naha
Harbor.

A gigantic sinkhole in a city street is one
particularly terrifying example, while a
beach at the airport is far more pleasant. In
Okinawa, Japan, however, they have taken
the striking visual symbolism of ‘a tree
growing in Brooklyn’ to a whole new level,
with a gigantic Banyon tree left standing
majestically in the middle of a busy city grid.
But it doesn’t stop there. An ancient tree
standing tall and silent amongst the swirling
traffic and blinking lights of the city would
be interesting enough, but perched in its
massive branches is a diner, the Gajumaru
treehouse diner, offering a unique dining
experience overlooking the city and the
beautiful Naha Harbor beyond.
Reached via spiral staircase, diners can feel
like they are traveling into another world,
more natural and ancient, just a few stories
above the bustling streets of Okinawa.
The beautiful view from the restaurant’s
wide picture windows and airy balconies is
at once surreal and mesmerizing. Flanked by
gigantic limbs that grip the tiny-seeming
restaurant in their palm like fingers from the
the hand of a long-forgotten god or titan, the
sights, sounds, and motion of the city below
are ever-present, but seem miles away.
Further, the gentle waters of Naha Harbor
would make this an ideal view for any
restaurant, let alone one perched high in a
single treetop, reminding customers of the
astounding nature that once existed, and still
surrounds, their beautiful city.
