Katase Koma

Katase Koma

Katase Koma (spinning top) is a traditional Japanese toy that was popular and famous in the Shonan area from around 1926 to 1968. The Koma (spinning top) spins around on its axis, and children at the time tried their best to compete with one another by carving and filing their spinning tops. These children’s efforts inspired the local woodcrafters, and as a result Katase Kowa was born.
