November 25th, 2016

Mildseven Hill

Mildseven Hill (マイルドセブンの丘) is a hill in Biei town located in the southeastern part of Asahikawa city, and Japanese larches are planted as a windbreak forest along the hill ridge, and was named after Mildseven (famous Japanese cigarette). The trees were printed on posters of the cigarette in 1978. A sales copy was "White Best Sellers", and blue sky with a vapor trail and thw winter Mildseven Hill were designed on the poster. The hill has became a famous tourist attraction. A parking space for about 5 cars is provided, But a public restroom is not provided. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. Private Fields No Trespassing ! Unfortunately, the two thirds trees have been cut down in 2018.

The distance is around 4 km away from the center of the Biei, and a convenience store is not built. Hip cafes and restaurants such as Land Cafe (ランドカフェ), Blnac Rouge (ブラン ルージュ), ARUUNOPAIN (あるうのぱいん), Gomu-Marine (ゴムまりん), VILLA e PIZZERIA iLcoVo (ヴィッラ エ ピッツェリア イル コーヴォ) and Ferme La Terre Biei (フェルム・ラ・テール 美瑛) are relatively near here, and I think tourists can drop by here while they enjoy a tour of Pachwork Road (パッチワークの路). By the way, speaking of the tasty restraunts or shops near Biei Station, Restaurant ASPERGES (レストラン・アスペルジュ), Komugikobo (小麦工房), Yoshoku and Cafe Junpei (洋食とcafeじゅんぺい) and Senkakobo (選果工房) are popular in particular. I ate foods at the Restaurant ASPERGES, the Komugikobo and the Senkakobo, and those were tasty.

Japanese Larches Used as Windbreak

The Mildseven Hill at about 300 m above sea level is one of gentle hills in the Biei, and linded silhouettes of the trees on fields is very good, and the sunset view seems to look beautiful, too. The distance is suitable for seeing a good view because entering the private fields are not allowed. Different views can be enjoyed depending on seasons, too. Good views of some small hills are worth seeing near here, so I recommend finding the good views at other small hills, too.

A lot of tourists visit here in a winter, too. After all, the poster is winter scenery, so they may well see the winter view. But a road for the Mildseven Hill is not removed the snow, so a parking lot for 5 cars is provided along the other road, and the visitors can walk on the beaten snow. An entring fields is not permitted in the winter, too. In addition, I found famous trees finally. That is a little way off from the Mildseven Hill. The tourists can look at it along the road. Another version of the poster using the famous winter trees was designed, too.
