Spinning tops in Japan are called "koma," or a toy that one can play alone. Similar artifacts have been dated as early as the 6th century. Originally, spinning tops were only played by nobles. They were later introduced to common folk in the Edo period. As tops spread across the country, they evolved differently in different regions. Although "koma" may sound lonely, the game itself is actually very lively in Japan. It is played during New Year to symbolize the "rolling in" of wealth and good fortune.
