Origami #1

Origami Sumo Wrestler. Edo Tokyo Museum, Japan. 2005

Submitted by Jenni Fuchs

My husband and I met in Japanese night class so, unsurprisingly, our first holiday together took us to Japan, which was also my first time there. We spent several hours at the Edo Tokyo Museum, where we met an elderly Japanese gentleman, one of the museum’s volunteers, who was showing visitors how to make origami sumo wrestlers. Our Japanese was still rudimentary at that point, but we managed to communicate and I still have my little sumo wrestler until this day to remind me of that very special visit!
