    As ninth head of the Matsudaira clan, Tokugawa Ieyasu created the foundation for centuries of peace in Japan, fulfilling the dreams of Chikauji, founder of the clan. Local youths revived this festival, centered on the belief that touching a wooden ball purified by water from the well used for Ieyasu's first bath will make wishes come true.
