This object is called 風車 (かざぐるま / kazaguruma) in japanese, in english this in known as pinwheel or windmill. A pinwheel is a child's toy consisting of a stick with colored vanes that twirl in the wind.
This pinwheel was given to my sister Andrea as a present, I have always liked how delicate it is and the colors; it is beautiful for my eyes and reminds me of my childhood.
Thanks to Laura and Raul for telling me the japanese name of this object!
