Ken & Mary Tree, Biei-cho
(3.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
A giant, 80-year-old poplar tree made famous by a 1972 Nissan ad campaign, Ken & Mary Tree stands alone in a mustard field against rolling hills and vast fields. Named after two characters in the commercial, the tree stands out as a landmark of Biei region, and even gives its name to a nearby bed and breakfast. Bizarre for most outsiders as a tourist attraction, the location makes a nice stopover if you are driving in the area. You can reach the famous poplar in 10 minutes by car from Biei railway station, or rent a bicycle at the station. Add Ken & Mary Tree and other attractions to your Biei-cho trip itinerary using our Biei-cho tour planner.

  • Ken and Mary wood is wood from Asahikawa direction over the patchwork hills and overlooking the first. The poplar tree familiar to residents, such as poplar trees at Hokkaido University, Hokkaido is one tree that symbolizes femininity. You can take tea while enjoying the landscape near pension "Ken and Mary" and Cafe "treeteras"., biei.
