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.
From a distance, this tall poplar tree grows upright on the vast hills of Biei, forming a typical Northland landscape. There is also a homestay nearby that provides simple meals and rests on the way. It is very cozy.
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.
It's worth going, although it's just a tree, but with the surrounding scenery, it's very different. You can make a masterpiece when you shoot from any angle! I went with the twinkle bus group in the United States and Britain, because there is no way to drive by car, and the transportation is the most convenient to follow the group.
The tree of Ken & Mary is similar to the reason why the tree of seven stars is famous. It is also famous because it appeared in the commercials of Nissan in the 70s. The hero and heroine in the commercials are named Ken & Mary. In fact, these two trees are tight. The poplars pasted together look like a tree from a distance
