IMPORTANT - Please help ID this tree in Japan

Dear all, I would really appreciate if you can help me identify this weird looking trees that I saw in Japan. Unfortunately, I can't get a close look at the leaves. Thank you very much!

    I think these are probably Sciadopitys verticillata, the Japanese umbrella pine.

    These ones look a bit strange, perhaps because of their age.

    Perhaps if you have a look at your (higher resolution?) originals, you can do a bit of research to confirm or refute that ID; please let us know.
