Take a Hands-on Origami Lesson at Origami Kaikan

At Origami Kaikan, visitors can see seasonal exhibitions of origami art in the gallery, watch the washi paper being made and dyed in the studio, and experience making an origami art by participating in the workshops held everyday.

The Mini Lesson held everyday provides a great opportunity for travelers who want a quick experience of Japanese crafts with locals. There are longer advanced lessons for those who are a little more serious. Two of the recommended classes for those will be the Origami Jewelry Lesson held once a month in bilingual (Japanese and English), and 60-min lesson by Mr. Kobayashi, the director of Origami Kaikan.

There are some English-speaking staff members at Origami Kaikan. Although they may not be around all the time, they welcome foreign visitors. Language is not a big issue when it comes to Origami as you can watch and learn, and communicate through origami.
