I love origami, and other related paper crafts, so this post is just a collection of some close ups of some of the lovely paper folding I found as walking round Tanabata. The amount of work that went into these decorations when they were only up for 3 days amazes me.

Lots and lots of cranes...
...this is why.
All of these were solid strings of cranes, and they were giving out necklaces of them too. The message on stars on the left says "No More Hiroshima"
They're not technically origami, but I love these dolls.
