    When I was a kid I was taught kendama as grand fathers toy that they used to play a lot when they were kids. But now it isn’t anymore.

    I have tried this toy Kendama once. My friend from Japan is good at playing this toy, but I didn’t play very well. It’s difficult. I’d like to try once more.
