Timezone

Asia/Tokyo (UTC +9hs)

Important preparation for the online workshop

Please prepare 1) ten or more origami sheets of approximately 150 to 200 mm (6" to 8") square, see note below, for each participant, 2) a pair of scissors, 3) bamboo skewers or toothpicks, 4) a flat surface such as a table or desk, 5) your hands, fingers, and nails washed and dried for the work, and 6) online communication facilities for ZOOM (please download its free application).

Note: Origami sheets may be available on an online sale, but if not, you can cut square sheets from regular-size sheets of paper such as A4, letter size, or legal size without using special tools, see the second photo at the top of this page. You can also cut out your origami sheets from wrapping paper and/or any other color or patterned paper. For multiple sheets, it is recommended to arrange a precisely cut cardboard template by using a set square/triangle, ruler, and utility knife, see the third photo.


90 minutes Origami workshop

The online workshop will start with a simple model, and proceed to more complicated and/or difficult ones following a program which will be discussed and agreed upon by both of us previously via the message box. You will enjoy your first Origami works, and complete several cute models by yourself.

You will have some very basic Japanese words and phrases which make your "real" tour to Japan more fruitful through the workshop too.


Review of the Workshop

After the workshop, you will receive original Origami recipes for the models you made during the workshop for your review. Make more Origami works recalling the workshop to improve your technique and to prepare for the second step.

Second Step in Tokyo, Japan

Visit Japan and be invited to my house in Tokyo for your second-step Origami workshop. You may select a regular tour, or I will customize a tour upon your request.

Yamasan went beyond the call to insure the needs of my group. Traveling with 2 wheelchairs, he made sure to customize an itinerary that would fit out needs. He made sure everything was perfect.

Simon W.

Thank you very much for your review comment. I feel very sad that I could be with you for the first two days only. Your stay in Tokyo was "too" calm because of Covid-19. It was lucky that your symptom was just moderate and fortunately, I was not infected. You have to visit Tokyo again soon for the two days you missed to be with me. I'll wait for such days to prepare some exciting experiences for you. Thank you again.

Shibuya April 2023

It was our first day and first time in Japan. We wanted help with the subways, visiting our first restaurant, etiquette for visiting our first Temple and a tour of Shinjuko. We asked “Yama-San” to do that and he created a tour to match our request. Great day!

Brad J.

Thank you for your comment. The day was a great day for me being with you, three beautiful couples. I could feel your love throughout the tour. Hoping to see you again, Yama.
