Emperor Akihito and a local schoolchild team up to settle a young sapling as Empress Michiko watches on at an annual tree-planting ceremony, held this year in Uozu, Toyama Prefecture, on May 28, 2017. Among the trees planted by the imperial couple were the locally developed Tateyama sugi, which produces almost no pollen, and the Koshino fuyuzakura, a variety of cherry. (© Jiji)
