The above samurai hat is called "Kabuto" in Japanese.
Although the hat is made of paper as an Origami (paper craft), real Kabuto is made of steel and more lake a helmet.

Tale of Ashigarayama, also known as Kintarou, is often used in cub scout meeting or campfire.

Try using the Join-In-Jamboree of the 30th Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Jamboree, which is the dry-run for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. Here is the link - http://www.scout.or.jp/_src/sc2758/jij.pdf


Great thanks :D
And maybe there is some simple dance to learn and teach someone?
