Want to try origami since you are in Japan? We offer an introductory origami workshop in a quiet neighborhood in Tokyo. Solo travelers, families with kids and large tour groups are all welcome!
As you match corners and lines of paper, origami makes you focused and relax. This will be a unique opportunity to learn origami from a Tokyo local. Manami shares not only origami skills, but also history, stories and meanings behind the shapes.
For solo travelers and groups up to 4 people, we will meet up at a cafe in Ryogoku neighborhood. It is known for its photogenic parfaits, a variety of drinks and the stylish interior.
For larger number of participants including big tour groups, we will reserve a spacious meeting room. We will be using a camera, screen, monitors and projector so that everyone can easiliy see the host's hands making origami.
We will prepare various kinds of traditional and modern origami paper with beautiful designs. You will enjoy picking one sheet out of our collection, which you think would best suit each shape.
Even if you don't have any previous origami experince, we will help you to complete 3-5 shapes. Manami goes step by step, making sure that no one will be left behind and encouraging guests to interrupt her anytime when they need help.
Feel free to take selfies with your works and send them to your loved ones back home - they will love it.
