Student Lounge KIZUNA presents Japanese Spinning Top Making

KIZUNA's January event is a Japanese spinning top making workshop at the Kyoto Handicraft Center, located within walking distance of Kyoto University's main campus.

Traditional tops, or koma, are popular children's toys, typically played with during the New Year's holiday season. They are also considered to be good-luck charms.

In the upcoming workshop, participants will work on a Kyoto-style koma, which is made of colorful cotton threads. The process involves winding threads around a rod, and coating them with a fixative using a brush. The finished tops can be taken home as souvenirs.

This will be a great opportunity to experience the Japanese traditional craft and make new friends. KIZUNA looks forward to your participation.
