The Japanese word, "Origami" means two different things: "Ori" means "to fold" and "Kami" means "Paper" (kami changes to gami because of rendaku). The history of Origami dates back to the invention of paper. One of the most famous Japanese Origami designs is the Japanese crane. The Crane was believed to be auspicious in Japanese culture. Ancestors believed that one who folds a thousand paper cranes will have their heart's desires come true. The Japanese crane is also believed to be a symbol of peace.
