It is said that the tradition of "Kishu Temari Ball" started with a ball made for a princess by the court ladies in Wakayama castle.
It is a folkcraft with a pattern of chrysanthemum, each carefully hand made.
Because it contains a wish of "long happiness”, so people use it as one of trousseau, as a celebration gift and so on.
Kishu Temari can be purchased at Wakayama City Souvenir Shop etc.
