About Me

This is a page ran by a senior college student in Western Pennsylvania, and I call myself, “Hayrow Kitty” – where this nickname came from is a very long story. (And will be explained in a later post)

I grew up in Japan almost all my life.  I started learning origami from my mother when I was 3. I quickly picked up how to make paper cranes (tsuru or 鶴), and began making them as tiny as possible – sometimes so tiny that I had to use toothpicks. 

My passion towards origami flourished as I grew up, and whenever I had time, I made different kinds of origami for fun. My personal project with my 5th grade homeroom teacher was to create my own origami patterns and record them in my book.

However as I grew up further, sadly, I had little disposable time and my interest shifted – I was distant from origami for several years. Many years passed, and it was when I first studied abroad in the U.S. and Canada as a high school exchange student that I started folding origamis again. My first intention was to catch attention and begin a conversation with unfamiliar people by making from a scrap paper.

Now that I learned that people would also like to learn how to fold origami, and I decided to start a blog about it. I hope to help you learn, and would appreciate your feed back – either negative or positive – I would like to continuously improve my instructions.
