Crane bird - Japanese healthy long life symbol

Crane birds are beautiful big white birds with a little bit of black color on wings and necks.

Even though we don’t get to see them often, crane birds are very familiar for many of Japanese people.

Crane birds are often used as a symbol of good luck and healthy long life.

Especially at the cerebration occasions, we see crane bird pictures and decorations.

On new year day, we use items with crane bird pictures, such as kimono, special black box for special new year food called “osechi”, new year cards called “nengajo”.

We turn on TV on a new year day, we see many CMs using crane birds fling toward Mt. Fuji.

On wedding, brides wear special wedding kimono with beautiful crane bird embroidery.

Crane birds are often be seen with Mt. Fuji on these occasions, as Mt. Fuji is also another good luck symbol.

It is funny that I have never seen actual crane birds, but they have been very familiar birds to me since I was small.

They are beautiful and my favorite birds.
