Chopstick practice

Asahi: Weekend Beat: Wooden toy maker starts from scratch, carves out new niche

“Did you know that picking up beans with chopsticks is a good rehabilitation exercise?” one family member said.

“It’d be good practice for children, too,” another added.

And thus “Ohashi de Dozo” (With chopsticks, please)–a game in which players pile up cylindrical wooden pieces with chopsticks–was born. The toy, which has proved popular at kindergartens and day-care facilities for the elderly, is a product of [Harumasa] Ono’s firm Heiwa Co., a wooden toy maker based in Nagoya’s Showa Ward.

It would also be good practice for people who don’t use chopsticks daily. I wonder where I could get a copy of this game?
