The Japanese have been playing with the kendama for centuries. It gained great popularity during the Edo Period (the time of the samurai! 1600 - 1868) and today the kendama is known and loved all around the world. 

The object of the kendama is to land the ball on either of the two side cups, the bottom cup, or for those wanting the most difficult mode of play, try landing it on the pointy spike at top. We recommend holding the kendama with the string motionless below. Then, without jerking your hand too much, bend your knees and straighten them to bounce the ball as straight upward as possible.
