Great picture, it looks a bit like a Rosa rubiginosa hybrid. Is the foliage scened?

Thank you Andrew
No the foliage does not have any scent.

My plant from Rosenposten is certainly not nearly thornless but very thorny. The thorns are small and quite soft and cover the branches like fur.

Photos show bristles and prickles. We've deleted Thornless.

Another piece of information: My plant (coming from the reputable RosenPosten nursery, Denmark) has been completely cane hardy in my garden in southern Finland. The winter 2014-15 that killed, for example, Polstjarnan to the ground did no damage to R. maximowichiana. So I think it should be listed as hardy to at least Z4b.

I wonder if the rose pictured is the "lost" 'Apple blossom' rose Dr. Skinner sent to Europe?

"By crossing Wm. Godfrey with another of my hybrids I secured four nice roses. One of these, now named "Appleblossom," keeps flowering throughout the summer and is now being tested in Europe where it has already created some interest."

The colour is definitely wrong for 'Dr. F. L. Skinner'. Maybe a friend from Japan can post a picture of the label.
