"When I first received the Hokusai and Hiroshige print origami paper packs [...] I was just too afraid to fold these beautiful arts. I didn't want to ruin some of Japan's finest arts in history by folding! I just wanted to keep and admire them, without folding. [...] Overall, I am extremely pleased with these products. I grew to love them, even though I was a little intimidated by what they are at first. As Japanese and as an artist I inevitably wanted to pay respect to some of the greatest Japanese artists, Hokusai and Hiroshige. But I am glad that I found many uses of these prints that bring out the beauties in them." --Yuki Origami blog
