A toy like cup and ball has existed in all over the world since long time ago.  This came to Japan in the end of 18 century to Nagasaki.  The origin seems to be French bilboquet.  
In Japan, it has the boom in Meiji, Taisho, and in the beginning of Showa.  In 1977, cup and ball with practical function and design was spread, and it had a great boom called “Kendama (cup and ball) Renaissance”.

In this video, one Japanese man shows very difficult technique.  Recently, there seem to be many foreigners play cap and ball.  Many foreigners are very surprised by his amazing technique.

Amazing!   If you could show all technique by editing, it might be wonderful!

USA
Great!  Excellent technique!  I got excited, too!

I think his Kendama technique is amazing.  I saw some roller braders playing Kendama at the park for skateboaders.  I wane one, too!

Netherlands
Is he the champion of Kendama?  His technique is amazing!
I just started playing cup and ball, and this is very interesting.  Well, I’m not as good as you, though…

Canada
I just say “it’s tasty” to this level!

I’ve played Kendama for one year and half.  His level is totally different.  It’s not normal!

It’s not unreal…  Which Kendama are you using?  I understand you use Mugen with wine, gold and yellow, though.

What’s this?  It’s impossible to do that even by practicing so many times…   o_O

I don’t wanna believe that some of his techniques are not real.  It’s impossible!!!

If he plays Nunchaku, it might be great!  Kendama is just like a weapon!

It should be much more difficult than I see.  But to tell the truth, it might not be so impressive..   :(

I cannot understand what’s happened.  I even cannot put the ball to the pin, either!!!

I needed 2 minutes to notice that a ball is connected to the string.  :(

It’s used for Ninja training, right?  I know that.
