We were taken here by our guide and loved it. Very interesting museum and shop with amazing origami and demonstrations. Well worth going to see truly authentic Japanese crafts.

This was a nice gallery with beautiful pieces of origami on display. I didn't take a class but know it's offered here. It's a nice quick stop for those interested in paper folding.

I went there thinking it was a museum but it wasn't much of a large museum, just small exhibitions of origami crafts and a workshop for hands-on washi tape activtiy. Though it wasn't what I expected, I still had a lot of fun here!
