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.

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.
