Since ancient times, the Japanese have viewed the crane as a symbol of long life and good fortune. Nowadays, when people refer to "a thousand origami cranes," they generally really mean a thousand. But in the past, the phrase "a thousand origami cranes" referred to a large number of paper cranes. The number did not have to be exactly 1,000.
Along with the many traditional origami figures (such as cranes), there are also many new creations invented in modern times. This gallery presents some of the more modern pieces. (To get a look at some traditional pieces, visit the "Let‘s Make Origami!" corner.)
Not wanting to bore you to death with all our corner bookmarks…… but here is another example of our most popular bookmarks today: easy monster bookmarks. Perfect. Do check out the rest of them too!
In Japan, at one time origami was taught in schools but today, children are generally taught origami at home. Holidays are celebrated with colorful origami decorations made by the family. On children‘s day (formerly boy‘s day), children make colorful carp: a fish that swims upstream, against the current. This symbolizes strength. During the summer, Tanabata, The Star Festival is celebrated. Live bamboo branches are decorated with origami stars and other paper decorations in a manner which brings to mind a decorated Christmas tree.
