Unknown Maker 1998 Japan Yo-Yo Contest pin
Exhibit #2274
OwnerRick Brough

Pin from the 1998 Japan Yo-Yo Contest. Pin is approximately the size of a U.S. half dollar coin.

!998 is considered the year that Japan became highly competitive in the world of yo-yo playing and yo-yo contests. Since then, Japan has produced a large number of very talented players who have gone on to win nearly every major contest on the world stage. Their skill and technique accelerated with the yo-yo craze that hit Japan in 1998-1999. Today, in 2016, they continue to be at the forefront of yo-yo design, playing technique, trick innovation, and entertaining performances.
