Origami art in Japan

The word “origami” comes from japanese “oru” (to fold) e “kami” (paper). It literally means “folding paper” or “folded paper”. The Origami have a very important meaning in Japan, most of all in the spiritual sphere. This fact can be asumed also from the word “kami” that has the meaning of “God” in the japanese language. Japanese people in fact used to believe that the purpose of paper wasn’t just for handwriting, but also to intermediate between human beings and Gods. nigiri selection at izakaya japanese restaurant Il Cuore florence
