Japan Technology team member Kohei Nishimura shows us their newest monometal release, the Mirage. Designed specifically with 3A and 5A in mind, their translated announcement copy reads “Please feel the design skills of JAPAN TECHNOLOGY” which is pretty baller and we like it.
Yoyo used is the Japan Technology Mirage.
Bryan Figueroa is known for his 4A, but mostly that’s just because people don’t realize what a gifted 1A player he is. He’s got it all…style, creativity, and some of the smoothest trick delivery you’ve ever seen.
Yoyo used is the Japan Technology Origin.
Team Whistle just dropped their 2016 team video, filmed at the Japan Open YoYo Contest. It’s solid. Enjoy!

Japan Technology has released a new “Pearl Collection” version of their popular Ashiru Kamui Light offstring yoyo, and with it comes this great video of Atsushi Takeuchi showing off the new model. Why don’t we see more offstring videos?
