Origata (Japanese Paper wrapping) is an ancient word with nearly 600 years of history yet today, it is a lost word in Japan—in fact, very few Japanese even know its meaning today. Simply defined, it is the method of wrapping gifts with handmade paper without the use of scissors, tape or glue.
During the 15th century, Origata was used as part of an exclusively established tradition amongst upper-class Samurai families of the Muromachi period (1392 – 1573). A gift would be placed on a piece of paper and neatly and elegantly wrapped without moving nor turning it. The wrapping represented a symbolic shape of the gift inside for the recipient to identify at first glance. The giver would directly present the gift to the recipient as making time and effort in giving the gift was thought to forge stronger relationships.

Here you can learn Origata. Choose your favorite paper work from samples and let's try to make it by yourself!
You don't have to prepare for anything for paperwork by yourself. The more people that join your group, the cheaper the fee per one group. Of course, you can participate alone.

This is a NPO corporation, which sponsors various Japanese traditional shows overseas. We sponsor events for foreign embassies and consulates in Japan. We were in charge of the dressing of Kimono for NHK KOUHAKU ( the annual Red & White Singing Festival) . We are in charge of supervision of TV programs like NHK WORLD (Begin Japanology and Cool Japan).

Now, we start setting some courses for foreign tourists and foreign residents in Japan. We know there are some places tourists can experience Japanese traditional events like Kimono wearing. However, this is the only place foreign tourists can learn from top-class instructors

We will pick you up at the nearest station ( JR Yoyogi station) at gathering time.
