Here is an origami crane I made. I love origami and I am especially interested in the idea of Senbazuru. I was introduced to this by my friend Natsuki, who I met whilst living in Canada. Senbazuru is 1000 origami cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Senbazuru is a popular gift for family members and friends. I am planning to gradually build my collection of origami cranes and eventually fold 1000 to make a Senbazuru of my own!
