Just a few minutes from Ochanomizu station in central Tokyo, the National Origami Centre is what it sounds like, the place to go for anyone interested in paper-folding. There's a gallery with enjoyable displays of brightly colourful origami, a shop selling an eye-popping range of paper and books, some of them in both Japanese and English, and a paper-dyeing workshop. And if you want to learn origami for yourself, they also have regular classes.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in summer 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I`m not working I write satire at www.iothern.blogspot.com and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check my youtube channel `CunningPunster` for a taste.
