This highly unusual top is a variation on the typical Edo spinning top. Pull the string from the handle, and the cherry tree goes into bloom! But the surprise doesn't end there. Keep pulling until it reaches full bloom -- and a little thief who's been hiding among the blossoms will suddenly lose his hiding place. 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.
