Synopsis: Imai Asa (Haru) was born the second daughter of a wealthy Kyoto merchant in the last years of the Tokugawa Shogunate. A tomboy with a love of sumo, she is a marked contrast to her elder sister, Hatsu (Miyazaki Aoi) who applied herself diligently to accomplishments such as the koto and needlework. Asa has been promised in marriage to Shiraoka Shinjiro (Tamaki Hiroshi), the second son of a leading Osaka moneychanger. However, when she is old enough to understand things, she vehemently protests against marriage. Asa unexpectedly finds herself attracted to her fiancee Shinjiro and becomes conscious of love. They get married. But the operations of the money exchange business have become outdated in the Meiji era and fall into dire straits. Her husband is not the type to make money and only amuses himself with artistic pursuits such as the shamisen. When the business is finally about to go under, Shinjiro brings the conversation around to coal mining which appears to be the future. These words ignite Asa’s spirit and she heads for Kyushu alone. What awaits her are male coalminers who only drink alcohol and do not work. On the other hand, Hatsu marries into the family with the most historic money exchange business in Osaka, However, they end up bankrupt. Hatsu vanishes just like she has skipped town. Asa finally finds her and offers financial assistance. However, her sister and husband (Emoto Tasuku) refuse this offer and make a fresh start on their own. Asa struggles as a business woman. It is not easy for her to be recognised in a male-dominated world and hardship continues. In the middle of this, her friendship with Godai Tomoatsu, who is committed to Osaka’s development, deepens. She takes on the running of a bank and champions the aspirations of many people. She also cultivates the first female bank employees in Japan. Even Shinjiro, who had devoted himself to “supporting” her, is motivated to take action after watching and getting a sense of the significance of work. With the passage of time, the final task which Asa and Shinjiro take on is the establishment Japan’s first girls college in consideration of the connection between education for girls and the progress of society.
