Origami Museum at Narita Airport, Tokyo

On my way to Minnesota, I saw that Narita airport was expanding its retail area. One new addition was going to be an origami museum. To my delight, the museum was ready for visitors on by trip back to Singapore. Here are photos of some of the exhibits.

There were many other lovely pieces of art in the museum, including an entire case of paper cranes. These were not the single cranes I learned to fold. These were multiple cranes all formed from one piece of paper!  However, the glass on the case prevented me from getting a descent shot.

In addition to the exhibits, the museum has origami books, lovely papers and finished products that you can buy.  Check it out the next time you go through Narita.  It is near the McDonalds– hows that a blending of cultures for you?
