Beech tree forest in Tokamachi city is astonishingly beautiful. The forest is called "bijin-bayashi" (meaning beautiful woman's forest) as way the beech trees stand straight looks so beautiful, inspring photographers and invising many visitors across Japan. Why beech tree forest in Satoyama attracts us so deeply? The exhibition explores stories of beech trees and humans in order to understand its beauty better.
