Guess this is Japanese art of simplicity! A lone and old poplar tree in wide green meadow becomes a significant tourist attraction. What more better than to relate the tree back to its history of being filmed with Ken and Mary for the Nissan? advertisement...More

Not sure what the attraction is here, but would not go out of your way to find the Ken & Mary Tree. Seemed to be popular with others though.

just a tree, nothing more. If you short of time, no need to consider to visit the tree. There are more interesting places in Biei where you could enjoy the countryside scenery.

Even though I didn't know much about the ad that got these trees to be so famous, they were nonetheless a pair of cool trees, plus when you were driving around Biei, you were bound to see them. I wouldn't say it's a must see,...More
