Every autumn the Hana no Fune (Ship of Flowers) makes an appearance in the moat around Hirosaki Castle in Aomori. The festival to see this display is the Kiku Matsuri or Chrysanthemum Festival. A mannequin rides out in a wooden boat with a dress of chrysanthemum flowers to greet the castle visitors as they explore the festival grounds. The scene begged to have a story told.

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many sets as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
