Wooden Tree Tops

Originally used by Japanese noblewomen to pass the time, Koma are traditional wooden spinning tops consisting of a round shape with a short rod running through the center. The rod forms the axis upon which the top turns, and one quick twist of the rod can keep a koma spinning for a long time. When spun, these beautiful koma stand upright on their rods so that they look like little dancing trees swaying in the breeze.
