He is often portrayed alongside the Seven Lucky Gods of Japan (Shichifukujin) and is highly prized. The cranes have a similar symbolism but also in other countries, such as China, where they are worshiped as divine heavenly messengers. In Christian symbolism these birds are seen as enemies of Satan and in Greek mythology they were associated with the goddess of fertility and harvest. The cranes are also a symbol of endurance – due to their very long hiking time, so they are often used as talismans for travelers.

The origami crane garlands are actually a fantastic decoration for weddings and other festive occasions, and their wrinkles are fun – try it for yourself!
