Boy's Day Celebration (Hilo, Big Island)
Sunday, May 2 2010 (10:00am - 3:00pm)

This was my first time teaching in Hilo. I had a great time introducing the community to modern origami. I was at Hawaii Japanese Center (751 Kanoelehua Ave.) teaching modern origami models such as Yami Yauchi's Spinner with Bennett Arnstein's
Graphic Spirals (available for purchase on, pipe cleaner flowers, magazine cover box and Paul Jackson's Swimming Fish (published in Origami Zoo). At the end of the day, I was teaching super simple triangle sailboats. One of the volunteers at the Hawaii Japanese Center kindly offered me a tasty chocolate nougat filled mochi, very modern flavor, yum!

There was martial arts demonstration, taiko drumming, spray-on tattoos, mochi pounding and koi flag making. Thank you for hosting my origami table.
