Nice tree but apart from that ....

A photo of the tree was on a Tobacco brand which is all that makes it famous. For me it was a nice shaped tree on a rise but that's it. Pretty well unexciting.

As others have mentioned, this sight was pretty boring. Biei is beautiful enough, I wouldn't go out of the way just to see these trees. Lots of cars and bikes stopping off to take photos here. I think the trees are famous for being the logo of the Mild Seven cigarettes.

The place is filled with warning signs telling visitors to keep out of private land. I don't see anything fascinating to see here.

This was another tree our tour guide pointed out on passing. It is another ordinary tree made famous by TV commercial. Really need to see the commercial to understand why so many visitors made their pilgrimage here.

Nothing spectacular as it is just a lonely tree. However, the drive around the area offers a great view of the surrounding landscape and scenery. Place is also peaceful and quiet too. Recommended to drive/cycle around this area.

I think it looks better without leaves. Also, there are many many people who choose to have their picture taken under the tree (i.e. the subject becomes the tree with the person appearing like a spot underneath it), so that it's impossible to get a nice picture of it in summer.

The area is really scenic and if you like photography is a must. Don't forget also Ken and Mary Tree, Parent and Child Trees. A car is a must here and the places are well indicated. Don't forget also the Furano area with its lavander fields.

The parent and child tree is prettier than this one in my opinion. But the surrounding is nice anyway. If you have time, go for it. If you don't, then you can skip it. It was nice driving around the small roads in Biei looking for those "famous" trees though. Not a bad idea if weather is good.
