The ancient practice of a man and woman folding cranes for their wedding is called sembazuru. The time and energy put into the thousand hand-folded origami cranes symbolized the patience and trust necessary to sustain a happy marriage.
Senbazuru 千羽鶴 is a string of paper cranes. The crane is symbolic of happiness and long life in Japan.
As some of you might know, I fold origami cranes . When I came across this picture it brought back memories of when I folded 1001 crane.
