The Sweet Auburn Kaizen has a beautiful rustic-brown tama reminiscent of fall leaves, cinnamon brooms, and apple pie. We only produced a limited supply, so get it while you can. The all-cherry models have been popular because the denser wood is perfect for the player who enjoys a heavier Kendama. Our semi-glossed translucent paint plays amazingly well and allows the beauty of the wood-grain shine through. Enjoy!


  • Traditional Assembly
  • Cherry Wood Ken
  • Updated Ken Shape
  • Widened Tama Bevel
  • Glossy Translucent Paint

KAIZEN is the Japanese philosophy of constant improvement. We’ve applied this concept to our production process, aiming to improve every product that we put our name on. Each part of the Kaizen Kendama has been meticulously thought out by the Kendama USA team, making enhancements with the future of Kendama play in mind. The result is an affordable, premium Kendama specially crafted for the serious enthusiast.

The Kaizen Kendama features a 3 piece construction with traditional Japanese style handle assembly. We have updated the Ken shape for precision balance, and the tama bevel has been widened for enhanced play. We've intentionally set our starting spike length shorter out of the box. This allows the sarado to settle over time, eventually bringing the spike into an ideal length after a few sessions without going past the "point of no return."

Kaizen Cherry Wood Translucent - Sweet Auburn has a rating of 4.5 stars based on 11 reviews.
