Moresby students learn origami

Main Stories

YOKO Matsumoto, wife of the Japanese ambassador to PNG, Morio Matsumoto, visited the Rainbow Christian School in Port Moresby last Friday where she demonstrated the Japanese art of paper folding.
Origami is the art of folding paper to create objects such as animals.
Matsumoto was assisted by Yasuko Matsui and two local staff from the embassy for demonstration and how to make Japanese helmet.
“Our objective is to see faces with Joy,” the embassy’s first secretary Susumu Shimano said.
“This is initiated by Mrs Matsumoto last year. She came here and did the same thing and then she promised that she would come back again.”
Rainbow Christian has a special relationship with the Japan embassy because the principal, Mathew Bai, was once a scholarship student to Japan.
He later became a staff in the embassy.
