Yakushima Takatsuka Lodge / 屋久島高塚小屋

Kagoshima, Japan / 鹿児島県屋久島町

Mountain hut built in the National park of Yakushima Island. The hut was rebuilt on the foundation of the old hut taken down of dilapidation. The Paper tube wall allows light to pour inside, by filling transparent tubes in-between. Paper tubes can be easily replaced if damaged overtime within the harsh environment of the mountains.
