Ozora is new kendama brand manufactured by Yamagata Kobo studio. Ozora kendamas are as good for begginers as for advanced kendama players. They are sold with spare string. Japaneese kendama asosiacion label is yellow.
Having recently watched Kill Bill again, my first thought upon seeing this particular kendama was “If O-Ren Ishii was into kendama, this would be hers,” for it is lethally pretty. I did have second and third thoughts, though.
Connoisseurs might be thinking “Why review this? It’s just an Ozora.” In the normal course of things, I would agree: what a waste of time. But is it just me, or is the metallic blue different from the others?
