Up goes the balloon!
The gentleman on the hot air balloon, needless to say its made of wood, will take off slowly by spinning the knob on top of the umbrella. Centrifugal force of the two small balloons will lift off and land the main balloon nice and safely. Such simple yet heart-warming movement of this Japanese Edo spinning top is a delight to watch. HAND MADE IN JAPAN



 The ingeniously talented craftsman who creates this traditional spinning top -- without any help from a blueprint -- is Masaaki Hiroi. Find out more about Masaaki Hiroi here.
