10 Worst and Strangest Homes in The World

10. Takasugi-an, Japan

Takasugi-an, a teahouse in Nagano, Japan, was built by jamming downed trees into the ground, giving the building a surreal appearance. In order to reach the teahouse, visitors must first ascend a precariously balanced ladder, then take off their shoes and ascend a second precariously balanced ladder. The teahouse’s interior is charming, but patrons should be aware that the building is vulnerable to swaying in the wind. The name “Takasugi-an,” which means “too high” in Japanese, suggests that whoever constructed the building did so with a sense of humor.
