Origami is one of the elaborate Japanese cultures known as paper folding. Various items can be created by only folding a square paper like animals, flowers, foods, playing toys and more! In this culture experience lesson , I 'll instruct you how to make basic Origami crafts depends on your level and requests. For beginners (adults), I recommend to make like flowers,animals, heart, crane and so on. For young children, I can instruct them to make easy animals and flowers, playing toys or Ninjya stars. For intermediate, we can try to make a little bit more complicated crafts. Origami is not only a part of Japanese culture but also it is used as an educational tool for kids in Japan. It might need your patient and concentration, but you'll become skillful with your fingers after this lesson!
You can make as many as possible in an hour. If the time will extend, additional fee is required. I am available to do this lesson from 9:00 am to 18:00 pm. Please contact with me before your booking!

Yukiko provided a perfect tour , we saw Tokyo in a completely different light. Excellent
Thank you for your quick review, Philip! It was a great meeting with you and your wife. Nevertheless we had to change our itinerary due to upcoming typhoon, luckily we could visit as many as possible with no rain. I'm glad to hear that you could see Tokyo in a different light though the tour. I hope you'll visit Japan again in a different season. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Unfortunately we had a badly delayed plane so missed our appointment with Yukiko. Nevertheless she left a wonderful package of information, maps, personal messages etc for us at the hotel which was extremely useful in getting started.
Thank you for posting a very kind review, Aileen! I didn't expect to get a comment from you because unfortunately the tour was canceled, so I am very happy to get your review. I was reassure that you arrived Tokyo safely after the plane trouble, and my information helped to get started. I wish your staying in Japan will become a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Amazing tour guide! Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a great way to explore that city! We had 2 small kids with us as well and she was so kind and understanding and even made origami for them on the train. Thank you!
Thank you for your kind review! It was a great meeting with your lovely family. I also enjoyed to make Origami and talk with your kids. They are so adorable! I'm happy if the day could be one of the memorable day for your stay in Tokyo. There are many places that I would like to show you and each season has a different attraction as well. I hope you come back to Japan with your family again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
Yukiko gave me plenty of time and suggestions to enable me to decide where and what I wanted to see in Tokyo prior to my arrival. She arrived early to my hotel for our days tour and was extremely well prepared. We covered all we had planned to do and more. Yukiko has a very good command of english and spoke clearly. She was able to impart a sense of the japanese way of life by talking about some of the meanings for their many rituals and traditions. We were able to compare these to life in my home country which gave the day so much meaning for me. On the practical side I was a capable user of the rail system by the end of the day which set me up for the rest of my sole sightseeing days in Tokyo. I would highly recommend Yukiko as your travel guide, I was very impressed.
Thank you so much for your great review, Alexandra! We had a very good time to talk about various themes such as life style, tradition, culture, ritual and the way of thinking based on culture. I'm glad that you enjoyed the rest of your days in Tokyo after the tour. Please share your experiences and memories with your family. I'm always welcome your future visit. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
We had a great day with Yukiko. She planned a great day for us. We hiked a few kilometres of the old Tokyo to Kyoto path after visiting the old tea room. Saw everything on our list. She is very friendly and easy to work with. Two of our party were nurses in Australia so it was great to learn about the Japanese health system from her.
Thank you for your wonderful review, Jackie!! On our trip in Hakone, we felt beautiful nature of the mountains and history with all our senses while hiking on Hakone old road. I'm glad that our tour was not only just visiting popular places in Hakone but also experiencing its nature. I also enjoyed to talk about health care system about our countries. There are many beautiful nature that I would like to introduce for you. I hope we will meet again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!
