Orizuru is a crane bird made with Origami.

Origami is Japanese traditional paper art and kids activities.

It is said to be brought to Japan by Buddhist monks around the sixth century, however there is no evidence about this and the origin of Origami is unknown.

The oldest mention of Origami is the poem written by Ihara Saikaku in 1680.

Now “ORIGAMI” is well known in the world.
