Kendama is facing a major turning point from the mid-2010s. Recent kendamas do not just do tricks, but they greatly increase the potential for performance. There are also a number of tricks that have never been seen before.
However, there are not many groups in Japan that do kendama performance with these tricks, create cool kendama animation works, or teach new tricks that appear one after another.
We YOKOKEN is based around Yokohama. We are working to spread the appeal of Kendama, the fun of doing it, and the culture of Kendama that will take over from the past to the future.
