A Japanese has special contemplation toward a flower of a plum from ancient times. It is the flower which a flower of a plum tells spring to, and the reason is because it blooms quickly in the time of the early spring before other flowers and the trees and plants send out buds. Many Japanese have sympathy towards a flower of a plum blooming in severe chill and snow admirably. One pretty a flower of a plum has the good fragrance that it is excellent. There is the microcosm which we can never express by words there.
