If you have time to kill, you can follow the Twinkle bus bring you around Biei. Just pay for JPY500 for Hill Country course.

If you are a nature lover, especially trees, this is the place to visit. There is a resting area just next to the souvenir shop where you could enjoy the panoramic view of the surrounding area, of course, complete it with a cone of lavender ice cream ~

It's not my favourite tree in Biei, but it's included in most tours and it's not hard to drive to if you have your own transportation.

Nothing special...seems that the trees are named so as to attract tourists to the cafe. If possible, spend more time in Furano. As mentioned by others, it is BEST to drive in Hokkaido.

Biei is one the most beautiful places I have ever been to in Japan. With rice fields (or whatever field it is), you see a different landscape from different angle. I don't really know how to appreciate the trees, but it is definitely worth a visit to Biei, whether on bus or self-drive.

The area is really scenic and if you like photography is a must. Don't forget also Seven StarsTree, 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.

I was there in end June 2013. This location is perched on top of a hill and the view from this point is astounding. You can see the rolling hills at the foreground.

Getting a good picture of this tree really need to have good weather or good backdrop like sunset or sunrise, or winter white. If not the tree alone is just another tree. The beauty of these trees is that everything around them are low height plants like flowers. There is a ken and mary cafe beside the tree location. You... More
