What to Expect

Japanese people used to give gifts wrapped in folded Japanese paper. With gratitude, fold and wrap the paper correctly. This is one of Japanese unique etiquettes, which is called Origata.
Origata is, so to speak, a wrapping method using traditional Japanese paper. There are differences in how to fold depending on the purpose: appreciation, celebration and hospitality depending on the seasons. In this plan, we practice how to make a basic envelop(pochi-bukuro) and a chopstick rest(hashi-oki). You can take home the completed work to commemorate this lesson. Let's learn Japanese traditional manner with 600 years history.
For foreign tourists, English-speaking teachers will be provided.

① Explanation about the history of Origata.
② Lesson about making a crane-shaped chopstick rest with Japanese paper.
③ Lecture how to make an envelop with Japanese paper.
④ Visit the workplace of Yuzen artist.
⑦ A commemorative photo is taken and the lesson ends.
