[ Photo ]  "The Three Trees of Biei"  These three trees appeared quite suddenly on a high hill in the surrounding area of Biei. They are unofficially known as the tree family, consisting of two parents and a child.  Each time I visit Biei, I like to drop in and see how they are doing. For me they seem to represent the warmth of the family, and the importance of togetherness. I will go to check on them again at the end of the year to see how they are doing.
