Text description provided by the architects.

A row of cherry trees is planted at an embankment at its basin, and many people visit this location during the cherry-blossom viewing season. There is Mirrors along the avenue.Taking advantage of this location, we intentionally made repeated refractions of the tree. In order to amplify the cherry two mirror walls set up angle position and making a cherry forest on a corner of the town.

Overlapping the cherries and reflecting with a warp, the people are invited by it to the forest. In addition, in the cafe the people could see the cherries and the reflecting cherries at the same time and feel season changing closely.Especially vertical roof struts of motif of the tree blanch made them feeling of a rest under the tree.Between two buildings, white gravel makes more reflecting brightly and symbolically expressing the center of a tree.
