Nothing special with the tree... The journey to that place is too far to walk from the information centre (Train station), but quite nice scenery to see during winter.. If you drive or rent the bicycle, should be ok. When we reached there, we only saw the 'ordinary' tree standing there.. The cafe nearby was closed.

Tourist spot, but good to rent a bicycle riding around Biei to absorb natural air of green meadow and farms. This famous tree was in the film where many tourists come to take photos, just less than 5 mins.

Nice trees but nothing special. Driving through Biei is scenic itself with rolling fields of neatly planted produce and flowers. Stop by if it's on the way or to stretch your legs but I wouldn't go out of my way to see this unless you particularly enjoy looking at trees (just two).

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, but if you were like me, and interested in collecting trees photos around Biei, this... More

I had heard of the other tree- seven stars tree - but not this one. Both are worth visiting but I actually preferred this one. They are within Kim's of each other. Driving this country roads is a lovely way to spend a day.

Since we came in December, all places was covered with beautiful white snow. You need to hire a taxi to visit here which quite expensive

Unless you know the history of this tree, then its just another lone poplar tree in the fields, so hardly worth the drive.

Walked during winter to take a look, but turned around halfway upon seeing that it looks just like a normal tree from a far. Nothing to be excited about.

How did a solitary tree drew so much attention from all over? This showed the power of TV (commercial) brought fame to this apparently ordinary tree. On a good bright day when the light is right, the photos that turn out can definitely be one of the prized collection of lovers. Well, if you are not into the tree, soak... More
