Kuma Tubes as known in the United States (because K. T. Kuma was probably the first to perform it outside of Asia) is a trick that is several hundred years old, of Chinese origin. Two large tubes are show empty and then items are produced, sometimes climaxing with a jar of water that is shown to be larger the the tubes.
Probably invented in the 1300s by Chinese magicians. There are references to them being called "Magic Tubes". A smaller version was also called the Organ Pipes.
