While in Japan, I visited two origami exhibits that were both amazing. One was Origami House Gallery, operated by one of my favorite origami artists, Makoto Yamaguchi. In the glass showcases, I saw a lot of pieces by Satoshi Kamiya and Eric Joisel, both of whom were featured in Between the Folds documentary. They create the most complex and realistic origami models that I have ever seen. I didn't take any photos there because they don't allow it, but you can see some of the artworks in their website here. There, I also found out about Japan Origami Academic Society and became a member.
The other origami exhibit that I visited was Nippon Origami Museum at Narita Airport. I have been there when I traveled through Narita last time, but I'm glad to visit there again and to snap some photos. I snapped these photos so quickly before I boarded the plane that I forgot to include most of the artists exhibiting work. I am terribly sorry.
Next time when I visit back home in Japan, I would love to visit Nippon Origami Museum in Ishikawa-ken. I've been wanting to go there for quite some time now, but I just didn't have time to make it this time. It's supposed to be the biggest origami museum in the world!
