In Biei, among the trees that are famous for advertising, the Seven Star Tree is a cypress tree that is red because of cigarette advertisements, and the Ken&Mary tree is a poplar tree that is red because of car advertisements. I thought Ken&Mary were two trees, but when I saw it up close, there was only one. It turned out to be the couple Ken and Mary in the car advertisement with this tree as the background. The surrounding scenery is different throughout the year, with rape blossoms in spring, buckwheat flowers in summer, fallow fields in autumn, and white snow in winter.
In 1976, this tree appeared in the "Horizon of Love" advertisement for Nissan Motors. With a total of 30 seconds of advertising, the tree appeared for almost ten seconds. Since then, this tree has become a hit and has become a must-see attraction for many tourists when they come to Biei. In fact, judging from the appearance of this tree, it is ordinary and has no peculiarities at all, but it is matched with the surrounding undulating hills and there is no idea of the flowers blooming next to it. If the weather is good, the scenery is still very good. beautiful.
This is another tree that is famous for its advertisements. In a Nissan car advertisement 40 years ago, the names of the heroes and heroines were named Ken and Mary. This tree appeared in the advertisement for only a few seconds, but it became popular. 40 years. From a distance, there is only one tree. Only when you get closer will you find that it is actually two trees, close to each other, like close lovers, so they have been popular for so long.
