At first glance, it is easy to mistake the Fukita Pavilion for a small art installation that looks as though two sheets of paper have been stapled to trees to form a tarpaulin setup often found on campgrounds. As it turns out, the Fukita Pavilion is much larger than it first appears. The height between the two sections is tall enough to fit people inside.

Designed by Ryue Nishizawa, an architecture firm based in Tokyo, Japan, the Fukita Pavilion was built in a residential area in Kagawa. A great place to congregate with friends and neighbors, it boasts benches to relax on. Parents can come with their children and relax as they play on the expansive surface in the center.
