“Origami” is the Japanese traditional art of folding paper into shapes representing objects (e.g., flowers or birds).

 Nowadays, “Origami” has come to be popular around the world as “Origami”.

 Origami organization has been formed in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, it has actually helped fanciers to deepen their exchanges.

 The Speed ​​of information transfer on “Origami” was further increased thanks to the great diffusion of the Internet.

 As a result, technical development has come to be advanced at a speed which was not considered in the past.

 A lot of excellent works with complexity which were not existed in the old days are now produced.

 Napkins that are folded for the Western cuisine is also broadly a kind of origami.

 From the geometric perspective, “Origami” has been studied as a branch of mathematics.

 This might be a background why Japanese people are good at mathematics.

 ”Origami” is also useful to the activation of the brain.

 A manufacturing method of the paper is transmitted from China to Japan in the early 7th century and Japanese original paper “Washi” was born thereafter.

 Japanese people began to make flowers or birds by folding “Washi” from “Muromachi Period” (1338 – 1573).

 I cited a photo of “Tsuru” (Crane) which I folded.

 How did you find my work?!!!
