Truly a worldwide phenomenon, treehouses extend to even the farthest corners of our world. Pete travels to Japan to tour with the country’s most beloved, renowned treehouse builder: Takashi Kobayashi. Longtime friend of Pete’s and truly an inspiration to treehouse builders everywhere, Taka takes his American buddy on a whirlwind tour of his greatest creations, including a treehouse bar in the middle of Tokyo, a luxurious spa retreat in the countryside and a touching treetop tribute to children affected by the devastating 2011 tsunami. All the while, Pete experiences the wonders of Japan’s wilds, the quirky excitement of Tokyo, and shares with us traditional Japanese experiences.
