commentary: だるまともみ独楽 (daruma and hand-rubbing top)

Mrs. Hiroi: It’s a daruma and–

Hiroi Michiaki: Yeah, this is a daruma and–

Mrs. Hiroi: A hand-rubbing top. [A top you spin by rubbing it between your palms instead of using a string.]

Hiroi: Yeah, it’s a top, and it’s not that it has any special story to it, but it’s a daruma, and a top.
