Hello TaO. I have followed you spinning tops advertures in Japan and am very impressed that you are the world champion over there but most of all i enjoyed your report of your visit to the spinning top museum in Nagoya! Thank you for sharing this on the forum. Although I have been in Japan many times I was never able to see the museum. And because I do not know if i will be able to go to Japan in future, your report means a lot to me. Kind regards, Lourens.

It is my pleasure to share it.

Lourens: your collection is now on top of my list of collections I want to visit  ;)

I still need to post the nice literature that Koma no Ochan gave me. And list the tricks they are using for their ladder (this will take some work).
I think I will split this thread between the Japanese players association and the museum so I can move the later to the collector's board.

Not sure if this has been posted but even if it has, it seems to fit here quite well.....

Sandeep, ITSA's Indian Ambassador, just visited the Nagoya museum.

Hiroko, Fujita, Sandeep and Suchitra:



Receiving instructions from Oncle Koma:



I think Sandeep was more interested in the koma shop at the front of the museum ;D :



and this is his haul:



By the way, some of us will visit the museum after the this year's world contest in Tokyo. In fact, the plan is to have a koma tour organized by Taka.
