Yochien Ombutsu No Zu, 1878
 
'Yochien Ombutsu No Zu' (Illustrations of Kindergarten Gifts) was published in 1878 by the Tokyo Women's Normal School. The book is now held at Ochanomizu University Library in Japan. The information on this page is taken from 'Oru Kokoro', the catalogue of an exhibition on paperfolding history held in Tatsuno City History and Culture Museum in 1999.

The source does not contain the text identifying the numbered pictures and I cannot find a copy of this book online. I believe, however, that the identifications made below are correct.

The first four pages of designs are the same designs (redrawn) that appear in on the first two pages of the 1874 Edition of 'Der Kindergarten' by Hermann Goldammer.
