The secret of making paper was kept in China for several hundred years and finally made its way through Korea and into Japan. A Buddhist monk is said to have carried this secret .The introduction of paper making to Japan several hundred years later coincided with the development of their religion and soon became part of the lives of its people. Colors and silk threads were added and origami was held in high esteem. Gifts were decorated with "noshi". Noshi had particular fold patterns depending on the gift.

Darcelle Dumont favorite origami, 2018-05-13 19:02:37. Origami, like other art forms, has many styles. The more common ones include: 1. Realistic: Creations that exhibit the main features of the subject, often resulting in complex designs with many steps. 2. Minimal: Creations that capture the essence of the subject with minimal folds and with an emphasis on simplicity. 3. Modular: Multiple geometric "units" made from multiple sheets of paper whose flaps and pockets tuck into each other to form polygons or polyhedra. Typically, all sheets are folded in the same way or in a small number of ways. 4. Composite: As with modular origami, multiple sheets of paper are used, but in this style each sheet is folded differently to realize a different part of the subject. Composite origami was one of the most common styles in the 1950s and ‘60s but is relatively uncommon today. 5. Practical: Models that have a real–life application, such as for use as envelopes, boxes, cups, dishes, etc. 6. Pureland: A concept suggested by John Smith of England, who proposed a composition system using only square paper and "mountain" and "valley" folds, resulting in models that are easy to duplicate. 7. Tessellations: A geometric folding technique in which the image is created by the pattern of folded edges across the paper. Tessellations are often periodic (repeating) and may be flat or three–dimensional, and many of them exhibit further structure when held up to the light. Not surprisingly, many of the leading practitioners of this technique have been mathematicians. 8. Wet folding: A technique invented by Akira Yoshizawa in which the paper contains a water–soluble glue (known as sizing) and is dampened slightly before folding. The dampness permits the paper to be folded into soft curves, which then harden in durability as the paper dries. 9. Crumpled: A technique created by Paul Jackson and developed by Vincent Floderer that involves the crumpling of the paper before folding. This technique can produce highly realistic organic forms.

In a fictionalized version of the story as told in the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, she folded only 644 before she became too weak to fold anymore, and died on 25 of October 1955; in her honor, her classmates felt empathy and agreed to complete the rest for her. In the version of the story told by her family and classmates, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum states that she did complete the 1,000 cranes and continued past that when her wish did not come true. There is a statue of Sadako holding a crane in Hiroshima Peace Park, and every year on Obon day, people leave cranes at the statue in memory of the departed spirits of their ancestors.
