It was particularly helpful to the japanese people especially when the Japanese stock market began operation in the 1870s. Steve Nison, an american technical analyst introduced this concept to the western people through one of his book "Japanese candle stick charting technique" since then, its popularity has grown exponentially over the years and its now a very useful technical indicator used especially by experts to analyse the financial market.
