Why is origami important to Japanese culture? In the ancient Japanese Imperial court, origami served as an elegant yet amusing leisure activity. Eventually, origami developed widespread appeal, and ultimately the practice transformed into an indispensable part of everyday life. One of the most famous Japanese origami shapes is the crane. The crane, or Tsuru (鶴), is known to be auspicious and represents longevity. Legend has it that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes will have their heart’s desire come true. The origami crane has since become a symbol of peace in Japan.
