[We are not taking orders]

Yajirobe is a Japanese term for a balance toy. The fun part of our Yajirobe and the difference with the ordinary balance toy is that it balances the spinning tops on each side of the stick, and the character rotates on top of the Red Mt. Fuji while the tops spins.
The character is Tono-sama, or a Lord, drinking sake and expressing his joy with his fan raised high, but if he seems little too drunk and doesn't want to move,  help him by pushing a little! 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.
