Seven Stars Tree, Biei-cho

3.1
#7 of 29 in Things to do in Biei-cho
The famed Seven Stars Tree stands alone among the rolling patchwork fields of the region, forming a picturesque scene and a great photo opportunity. Like a few others in the area, the tree's reputation was sealed when it appeared in a marketing campaign for a cigarette company, probably due to its superlative form and aspect. Nowadays, many people come here to capture a snap of the oak. Work out when and for how long to visit Seven Stars Tree and other Biei-cho attractions using our handy Biei-cho vacation planner.

  • As others have mentioned, this sight was pretty boring. Biei is beautiful enough, I wouldn't go out of the way just to see these trees. Lots of cars and bikes stopping off to take photos here. I think...  more »
  • A photo of the tree was on a Tobacco brand which is all that makes it famous. For me it was a nice shaped tree on a rise but that's it. Pretty well unexciting.  more »
  • The place is filled with warning signs telling visitors to keep out of private land. I don't see anything fascinating to see here.  more »

  • Nice view. Worth going to take some nice pictures. Beware of traffic jam at the main roads during park hours. 12noon and late noon about 3pm
  • Yet another tree made famous only because it was used in an advertisement for a cigarette brand. The surrounding area does offer a picturesque farm land landscape that is quintessentially Hokkaido.
  • I have never seen a lamer attraction! Its just a tree!!!
  • To be honest, I don't know how to appreciate it...
  • cannot understand
