You will be able to feel the sense of beauty and creative power peculiar to Japan.
Origami is one of the unique Japanese crafts,which turns a piece of paper into shapes of animals, plants, and many other things.
It started from the beginning of the 7th century, when thin but strong “Japanese paper” appeared.
Since then, people started to use “Japanese paper” in Shinto rituals, and to wrap offerings to the Gods.
It was not long before people started to notice the beauty of those folding lines on the wrapping papers on the offerings and gifts. And thus courtesy folding paper for decorating the packings was born.
In the early Edo era, people started to find fun in paper folding, and many creative origami works appeared, such as “Paper crane”,“Syuriken, throwing knife”, “Box”, and “Warrior’s helmet”.
And as a part of Japanese culture, the art of folding paper created from just a small piece of paper is still popular even in modern Japan.
