Easy! How to Make an Easy Origami Dove


Hello! I’m a writer of KARAKURIJAPAN, Yonosuke!

Today I’ll introduce a traditional Japanese culture, origami.


Origami is Used as an Interior Abroad!




Origami has been loved as a play for children in Japan.

Do you remember playing with origami when you were children? I remember often playing with origami.

And recently it has been highly evaluated overseas!

Origami is made as an art, and as an interior like that picture, which aren’t usual in Japan.

It is too close to me to think it is amazing because it can be anything like animals, people, or things.

Origami is profound!


Introduction of How to Make an Easy Origami “Dove”




This article is introducing how to make an easy origami “dove”. It’s one of the creatures familiar to us.

Doves and pigeons have been familiar to people for a long time. They used to be used as carriers of letters when there weren’t telephones. They are called carrier pigeons.

Even after telephones have been spread, they are often seen such as in a circus. That’s how they are familiar to us.

Then I’ll introduce how to make an origami dove!
