Japanese Waiter Launches Art Show Using 13,000 Chopstick Sleeves Left By Guests

In Japan, tipping your waiter isn't part of the culture. But when Yuki Tatsumi began waiting tables, he noticed that his customers would still leave something behind.

Rather than leave money, restaurant guests would leave small chopstick papers folded into intricate origami shapes. Tatsumi noticed the trend and began collecting the tiny works of art. He calls this the "Japanese Tip”.

Over the years, Tatsumi has collected more than 13,000 of these pieces. This is a combination of his own "tips" and "tips" from other restaurants.

The series was recently exhibited in Tokyo 8,000 pieces of chopstick origami on display. Follow the series here on the Japanese Tip website.
