This kendama is a musical instrument that resembles a shamisen’s tenjin. The technique of shamisen making, which is an entirely handmade process from a single piece of rough wood, is used for the kendama. The kendama produces a pleasant sound and rhythm when played. This is the reason why we designed the kendama like a musical instrument. The wood used for the kendama is made from the sturdy and shiny wood of the shamisen, so it makes a nice sound when played.
