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. Using our online itinerary creator, Biei-cho attractions like Seven Stars Tree can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Seven Stars Tree Reviews
Many tourists stop by to take pictures of it. I don't think it is worth it unless you are visiting / finding the other trees. more »
I heard these trees have been popular since they were aired on an advertisement of a Japanese tabacco company, Seven Stars. They are standing on a part of the famous Patchwork Road. more »
As peaceful as it can be, loved the winter snow view, however, if you want come in snowing day, be mindful the small road might be close and slippery road condition.
Sevenstar Tree (セブンスターの木) is an oak on Patchwork Hill (パッチワークの丘) in Biei town located in the southeastern part of Asahikawa city, and was named after Sevenstar (famous Japanese cigarette). The tree was printed on a package of the cigarette in 1976, and has became a famous tourist attraction. A parking lot is provided near the tree. But a public restroom is not provided. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. #LetsGuide
