This photograph was taken in Negishi Forest Park in Yokohama in spring of six years ago. The flower of the plum of red or pink had bloomed all over so that inside a garden might show arrival of a spring season. Several sets of family companions were viewing smf enjoying the its blossoms under the tree. Probably, they will be nearby residents. This park serves as the foundation the Yokohama racetrack where was made as first lasting foreign style racetrack in Japan in 1866. It was requisitioned by the U.S. Forces like the other military facilities in 1945 after the end of the war, and was put under management of the U.S. Forces from 1947. The area in racetrack had become a golf course only for the U.S. Forces during requisition. And the requisition of those other than a stand was canceled in 1969, and it was opened wide as Negishi Forest Park after maintenance by Yokohama in 1977. Incidentally, park area is 193,102 m2.

pretty spot for outdoor picnic and I like this delicate signs of spring which make the picture more cheerful. The pink blossom on the trees is a very nice touch in the composition and the group of the people have been placed nicely and with subtlety.
Thanks for sharing

Interesting low lighting scene of Negishi Forest Park's plum trees in blossom. The dominating grey hues contrast with the pastel blossom colors.
Thanks for sharing,

Magnifique panorama et belle endroit pour faire un pique-nique printanier, sous ces arbres en fleurs. Un beau retour en arrière. Encore plus beau en grand.

This is a beautiful photo with a pleasant atmosphere and very nice, mild colours. There is a superb balance between the pink and light green tones. This must be a perfect environment for a picnic.

Good evening Mikio,
Superb park photo, with spring blossom already started. Marvelous pink color in contrast, and the people between trees added the life factor to the whole.
Charming view, well collected.
*** The house in my pic. which you posted a critique today, is already demolished and an 8 stories building had ercted instead. Pitty for the lost cham. Thanks.

I can well understand how important flowering trees are for Japanese. Especially cherries but same seems to apply to plum trees. Cosy picnic on a spring day, and this time not too crowded!
A pity we don't have such flowering trees in early spring, we need to wait till May before we see apple flowers.

Looks like a scenic place to relax and unwind.... it has the feel of tropical setting and its simplicity as the composition is fine with the plum trees and the blooms dominate as strong interest. Nice angle and perspective and I love how the touch of vivid red actually pulls the eye along. A pleasantly laid-back feel of this scene but just alive with lovely colours and presence of the picnickers Pleasure to view, Congrats

I think it is an excellent idea to have a picnic under flowering trees. I like the distinct color regions in the photo (pinkish and greenish). I also like its aspect ratio.
