I love how the cranes are lit. It's a very nice effect for origami. And the shoes are very cute. This looks like an interesting and tempting shop. (I love paper crafting, though I haven't tried origami.)

They are precious but what would you do with them? Set them out as little sculptures?

When I want went to Japan I was fascinated by their ability just to make shop packaging look like a work of art.

I have seen origami before, but the idea of an entire store devoted to this art is new.

Such an amazing art. My Mother was into Origami and made little boxes with surprizes inside and animals and such. Not a beautiful as the Japanese could. MB

One of my favourite childhood books was about a little girl in Hiroshima and an Origami crane maker.
When I was myself a young mother, I went with my little daughter to the public library and there, a gentleman, who later introduced himself as "Professor Origami", made a paper crane for her.
