The Japanese "Origata" – the art of wrapping gifts in folded paper, is widely used in the Japanese gift-giving culture. The Ogasawara School had already created 40 types of “origata” in the Muromachi period and made origata an indispensable part of the Japanese rituals. In the middle of the Edo period, as the rituals had become more widespread among people, origata became increasingly popular in daily life as well.
Ms Junko Amakawa from the Ogasawra School will introduce the culture and folding method of “noshi bukuro”, one of the traditional origata of Ogasawara School.
