Hello. Now that I have some more time, I'm looking again on the topic of the creator of the three-piece spinning top of Japanese origin. This conversation on the mailing list date around September 2019. Everyone that answered told me it was either Makoto Yamaguchi or Taichiro Hasegawa. So I still don't know who the creator is.
I'm pretty lost here. I believe the best option is to ask them both directly. So, does anyone here have contact information regarding Mr. Yamaguchi and/or Mr. Hasegawa? If so, would you please ask either one about the authorship of the following spinning top: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/HX13ob2iEnhKk8QP1f3rGaGyOpkdTZ0v9sO6dKBYftuYt_QRR3bCz9klpvdIihjf8XrPF_l9Za40jqeXmJneTsmlBS-kZB10Y3Bk21QomVY7LPJyJpwgIdLCtIrDRUaGzEAO07J6XA=w2400 I'm starting to think this is the only way to solve this mystery. Thank you in advance. PS: What does "Makoto-koma" mean in English? That's one of the names given to this spinning top. -- Gerardo gerardo(a)neorigami.com
