Under a weeping cherry tree in full bloom — also known as sun bloom — a mother and her children feed pigeons.
They are in Tsutsujigaoka Park, Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture, Tōhoku Region, Japan.
The weeping cherry tree — known as しだれ桜 or shidarezakura in Japanese — is both famous and popular throughout Japan. This is sakura — or cherry blossom — season in Japan.
