I have been learning how to fold origami this year with some very nice Japanese women. We practiced in Ara-machi. I learned how to fold many things. Then about six weeks ago we started to plan for Tanabata. We had to make some Tanabata decorations and I was excited to participate. I helped to make the Fukinagashi on the far left of the photo. It was very excited. /Sendai Study Advisor Richard
