HUGE treehouse! 高森ツリーハウス

2022-03-21 by David

日曜日に南阿蘇のほうでドライブしてみました。目的地がなく、道は適当に選んだんだけど、突然この観光スポットを見つけました。

 

I was out driving the country roads to the southeast of the Aso area on Sunday, enjoying the unseasonally warm and sunny weather, and out of nowhere I came across this breathtaking treehouse just next to a tiny road!



2016年の地震までは結構有名だったみたいですが、地震の時から残念ながらメンテナンスは行われていないそうです。ということは最近「立入禁止」の看板も表示されています。あっちこっちにダメージが見えましたので、中に入れなかったです。

 

It looks like it was built as a sightseeing spot and art installation a few years back, but suffered some damage in the big Kumamoto earthquake of 2016 (the one that toppled the famous castle). Since then it doesn't look to have been maintained at all, and some of the structure is rather weather-damaged.




外から見てだけでも面白かった!

 

In fact since it looks to be made solely of wood, some of the steps leading to upper levels and walkways have actually rotted away - leaving it looking quite precarious. They've got a few "Keep Out" signs in place, so for once I actually paid attention and didn't try climbing up to the balconies.



帰ってからネットで調べましたので、地震の前の状態が楽しそうだった!

 

If you get the chance, I'd recommend taking a good walk around the outside, before it collapses completely over the next few years. It's fascinating, and truly awesome in scale. I mean, look at the photo above .... It completely dwarfs my car - it looks like a toy!

 

Finally, here's a pic I found on the net of the treehouse complex in its heyday - doesn't it look glorious?!

 

 

Here's the map, for those that fancy exploring:
