Do you know Hanamomo Dyeing that comes from the Terute-Oguri Story?

[Hanamomo Dyeing] The dyeing is derived from the legend of Princess Terute and Hangan Oguri. In cooperation with Mr. Yusai Okuda who is chief of a handcraft shop, Mr. Yusuke Tsubokura, plant dyeing artist, produced scarves dyes with the plant from Sagami and the Onsen water from Kumano Hongu Yunomine. The silk scarves are dyed with dye solution that is based on the plant's root and the Yunomine Onsen water. Tin, copper and iron are also used as mordants. Depending on the mordants, the colors become, violet, bright yellow and gray.

Yunomine Onsen of Hongu is an important place where Oguri revived in the love story with Terute.
