It seems like HYOUTAN:Lagenaria siceraria var. gourda

It usually means wealth or having may children.

It is very difficult to find what kind of tree they are.

It is not wild forest but planted tree. It is neither pine nor ceder.

I'm not sure but I think it is (Japanese) cypress blown in the wind.



By the way, the model of the picture is "KASAMORI, OSEN" a waitress of a tea house "MIZU-CHAYA".
