As part of the “Farragut Fridays” event series, the Japanese Embassy plans to have a booth where passersby can try Japanese paper folding, known as origami, and test their eye and hand coordination with kendama, which is similar to the cup-and-ball game.

The crafts and games are scheduled to run from noon to 2 p.m.

Hosted by the Golden Triangle BID, Farragut Fridays has outdoor activities — such as movie screenings, puppy adoptions and music performances — every Friday from May to September.
