A rich history
The Kendama toy's true origin is disputed but it found its modern name in Japan. The Japanese were responsible for evolving the Kendama beyond its roots as a simple cup and ball toy. Many tricks still have Japanese roots and that is why the different elements of the toy have Japanese names.
After a surge in popularity in the 2000s there are now players and competitions all around the world. The Kendama World Cup takes place annually in Japan, a nod to the overwhelming contributions made there in terms of toy design and the evolution of tricks.
