The name of Marimo originated from Japanese botanist Tatsuhiko Kawakami (‘mari’ is a shortened version of temari meaning handball and ‘mo’ is a generic term for aquatic plants). The spherical shape, with no roots or leaves, just like a ball of moss, attracts a lot Marimo lovers to own different sizes of Marimo. In Japan, every October, the Ainu (indigenous people of Hokkaido) holds a Marimo Matsuri (Spherical Algae Festival) which lasts three days. It is both a celebration of and a thanksgiving to Mother Nature for her bounty and blessings.
FOR LOVE AND LUCK! A love story like no other!
There is actually a Love Story with Marimo. About 100 years ago, there lived a young girl on the island of Hokkaido, whose father was the head of a village near Lake Akan. The girl’s marriage had been arranged but unfortunately, she fell in love with a commoner and they decided to run away together. When the lovers reached Lake Akan, they jumped in. They then metamorphosed into little Marimo balls and lived happily ever after.
