Mild Seven Hill

About Mild Seven Hill

The hill is famous as a result of its usage in a tobacco commercial for "Mild Seven" in the 1970s. It features a large windbreak of larch trees lined up in front of a hill. The ad aired 40 years ago but it is popular even now and many people still come to visit.

The hill is different colors in every season, with rich black soil and green accents in spring, white potatoes and lavender flowers in summer, golden wheat in autumn and silvery snow in winter. In every season there are beautiful sunsets and so it is a very popular spot for lover’s photos.

The hill offers gorgeous views but the most famous view is the approach to the hill, the so-called "Hill with a larch forest" at the beginning of the hill. There is a narrow road you can take up the hill and there is a beautiful view from atop the hill as well.

Independent of the hill is another popular photo spot, the "Brother trees" where two poplars stand near each other but separated.
