Self-taught architect, designer, and builder Takashi Kobayashi has been building magical treehouses for over 20 years. These aren’t any ordinary treehouses — what makes Kobayashi’s work special is how he incorporates the actual tree into the construction. Pretty amazing! Check out the video above to hear Kobayashi’s inspiring story.

    Ok well you never see the “treehouse master” at work making treehouses in the video. Did you watch the video? Its heart is far above the words used in your headline. There’s nothing whimsical about it, really – it’s kinda sad. It’s a story about a man who used his work in treehouse creation to aid those in need after a terrible natural disaster. I usually like this site, but you bombed on this one.
