In Japan, Ume (Plum blossom) flowers bloom in late February and early March, signaling the coming of spring. At the same time, it represents perseverance in the face of difficulties.

Takamori Saigo, famous samurai and politician who was actively engaged in leading the overthrow of the Shogunate during the final years of the Edo period in Japan, once said, "Plum trees bloom most beautifully if they overcome a severely cold winter." This now-famous proverb illuminates how outstanding success in business or life is only realized by enduring hardship.
