When the envoys finally return from their trip “The only welcome that the samurai and Nishi received came from the officers, the children watching them from a distance, and the sound of the waves washing languidly onto the beach” (Endo 227). There had been no news of their return home, since there were no other ships going in or out of Japan. These officers take him to new Lords and say that all the people entering Japan are being interrogated. Instead of making this seem better, Rokuemon saw this as bad news. The elder statesmen were certainly aware of that fact. I was mortifying to get the same treatment as the merchants and seamen” (Endo 229). As soon as the officers found out that they had encountered Christianity their attitude towards the envoys changed overnight. It was as though they were in prison and not having any freedom.

I like this paper. It is thin yet durable and it has a little bit of a vellum feel to it similar to the outer wrapper on a chocolate bar. Not quite but similar. It comes in a variety of colorful small print repeating patterns and on the opposite side of each sheet is the corresponding solid color. The picture on the cover shows patterned color on one side and blank white on the other but this isn't what I got. Being almost seven inches square means it is a little bit easier to work with. It comes with a fold out booklet that gives you some introductory folding instructions and six different projects: Swan, Pig, Tortoise, Samurai Helmet, Rowboat, and Star Box. One nice thing about these folds is that they have a Japanese Origami feel to them; The folds in the booklet would be a bit of a challenge for absolute beginners but if you have done a little origami you will get them. The picture below shows some of the paper and the six projects in the booklet.
