Hello I have been interested in The History of Kendama for ahwile now and am trying to get my hands on a replica or real jitsugetsu ball.  I see you have one on your website.  Do you have the maker who made this replica or can you possibly point me in the right direction
Here's a public reply for anyone interested.

This is a modern replica of the 1918 "Nichi Getsu" Ball (Sun Moon Ball), which was the original kendama. This one was given to BKA by Yano-san of the Kansai branch of the JKA, to be given as a prize at the 2012 EKO. (We don't have a note of who won it, sorry.)

We'd guess it was made in the Hatsukaichi area. Perhaps the shop there (http://kendama-shopandsalon-yume.com) could help.
