The soroban abacus is a traditional Japanese calculating tool, originally introduced to Japan from China around the 16th century. It was refined over time and spread across Asia and the world. Even in the present era of computers and calculators, the ancient art of abacus has survived and is once again beginning to be appreciated (or rediscovered) as an excellent educational and mental arithmetic tool.
Today, the soroban abacus is taught in schools and after-school programmes in many parts of Asia, including Japan, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and India. It has also been introduced to Western countries in recent years.
