I will be hosting some origami teaching tables at the following event. These are meant for passer-bys that are also attending the event. It's a smaller event, so if you're not on campus or close by, don't worry about it. If you come, you're welcomed to come on by, learn a couple models, talk origami, meet some other folders, things like that.

The UH community is invited to attend Nippon Culture Day, a one-day event where visitors can experience Japanese culture, both traditional and contemporary, by playing traditional games (otedama, kendama) and observing various hands-on workshops*. Workshops include: calligraphy, tea ceremony, gift wrapping, rice ball making, soroban (abacus), origami, and ikebana (flower arrangement). The purpose of the event is to foster a greater appreciation of Japanese culture and things Japanese among students studying the language as well as the university community in general. Informational booths (Study Abroad, JET program, Anime and Manga Society) will also be set up. The finale will include live performances by UHM students from the Japanese Culture Club and Jpn 471 (Okinawan Language and Culture).
*UHM Japanese language students have priority in participating in the workshops, but observers are welcome.
