Edo no Temari Uta II (江戸の手毬唄II; The Edo Handball Song II) is the sixth single from J-pop teen idol group ℃-ute. The single was released on July 30, 2008 in both limited and regular editions with the limited coming with eight interchangeable covers.

The limited edition and the first press of the regular edition came with a serial number card which can be used to enter a lottery where tickets could be won to an event. The title track appears on the album ④ Akogare My STAR as track #11, and on the Petit Best 9 as track #3.

On September 19, 2008, only 100 copies of a fan club DVD were released of the "Kurofune Version" (黒船バージョン) of the PV. The PV features one of the back dancers from the original PV dancing to a jazz instrumental of the song. The DVD cover portrayed Commodore Matthew Perry, as designed by Yajima Maimi.

Trivia[]

  • It is the first single to feature all members receiving solo lines.
  • The single featured Yajima Maimi as the center.
  • The title track was originally written for Itsuki Hiroshi, an enka singer under UP-FRONT AGENCY. He allowed Tsunku to use the song for ℃-ute, thus starting a friendly rivalry. Itsuki released his single under the title "Edo no Temari Uta" on October 22, 2008, three months after ℃-ute did. This is one of the reasons why "Edo no Temari Uta II" isn't considered to be known as a cover single. This strategy was also used for Nakazawa Yuko's Junjou Koushinkyoku and Fujimoto Miki's Okitegami.
