Origami unites people and creates happiness, resulting in peace and smiles all around the world.

I have found myself origami is quite versatile: easy to start, stimulating imagination and creativity, calming mind.

I will run the session with much love of origami, which is interactive and includes joking. I hope all of the guests having smiles and laughters.

It's easy and fun, just relax having a cup of drink :-).

Love, harmony and gratitude :-)

Teru's a great teacher and really engaging. He ran an origami session for myself and 15 of my colleagues. We all thoroughly enjoyed the session :)

We did this experience as a team building exercise and everyone had a great time. Teru was a gracious and patient host throughout and his passion and talent for origami is evidently clear. Highly recommend!

Teru was an amazing Origami Instructor. He was very patient with us and took it step by step at our pace. He made sure everyone got it before moving on. He also gave us some insight in the Japanese culture and how origami came to be. He took us on a (virtual) trip around his hometown which was great to see. He made it fun with his enthusiasm and sound effects. Our team and family had a blast with Teru! I highly recommend this experience!

Teru was amazing! He guided us through several origami for our team building activity. He connected and engaged with everyone on the call, was patient and made the entire experience charming and so much fun! The entire team was smiling at the end of the lesson, and we all had a few good laughs.

日本の大学の留学生のプログラムで参加しました。 コロナ禍で日本に来られなくなった留学生たちのために、貸し切りで利用させていただきました。私は日本から、学生たちは海外から参加しましたが、とても楽しい時間を過ごさせていただきました。Teruさんの工夫された説明は大変わかりやすく、折り紙が初めての学生たちも楽しく、折り紙を作ることが出来ました。本当にありがとうございました。Teruさんは、日本語だけでなく、英語でも説明ができるので、日本語学校や大学で日本語のプログラムを運営している方などにもぜひお勧めです。 以下、長くなりますが、学生たちのコメントです。 タッティ: 今日はとても楽しかったです。たくさん折り紙のことが分かって、折り紙を作ってみました。私は忍者の折り紙が1番好きです。簡単だったし、面白かったです。今日は本当にありがとうございました。 あんず: いろいろな折り紙の作り方を勉強できました。今日はペンギンと忍者、そして、つるも作りました。とても楽しかったです。それに、てるさんから素晴らしい折り紙も見せてもらいました。私が一番好きなのは、女性とバイオリンです。6時間もかかったといわれて、本当にびっくりしました。花火も素晴らしいと思います。動かすことができるし、本当の花火みたいな形でした。川崎ローズも初めて知りました。くしゃくしゃの紙みたいなものから、ローズに変わります。とても大好きです。いろいろなことをおしえてくれて、ありがとうございました。 マイ: 日本の折り紙はとても素晴らしいと思います。一枚の紙だけでいろいろな作品を作ることができます。なぜこんなに素晴らしいのか、とずっと考えています。私の国のような折り紙の文化がない国にとって、折り紙はとてもすごい文化です。日本の魅力はこの繊細な文化です。日本が好きじゃないわけがありません。Teruさんに感謝します。いろいろな作品の作り方を勉強することができます。日本の折り紙が大好きになりました。Teruさんの作品を見た後、私もできるようになりたいと思いました。Teruさんは真の折り紙の達人です。素晴らしいツアーをくださって、どうもありがとうございました。 ケンジ: 今回は面白かったと思います。本当の折り紙ではないが、何とか折りました。 チュー: とても楽しかったです。このツアーで折り紙を初めてしましたが、Teruさんの説明は分かりやすいですから、私もうまくできました。
