Kendama

けん玉

Kendama, in Japanese literally "spike ball" is a game of French origin called bilboquet and known in English as "cup and ball".

The wooden hammer-shaped toy has a ball with a hole in it (tama) attached to the hammer with string, this rests on a spike (ken) at the top of the hammer.

The game has recently seen a surge of popularity and is a fun skill to master and a hit at parties. The different tricks require a sustained degree of concentration and perseverance.
