Since GOSEN was born in Japan...

In Japanese culture, the crane is a symbol of longevity, "a crane is for a thousand years, a tortoise is for ten thousand years," and is an indispensable lucky charm for celebratory occasions. Even in ancient China, cranes and turtles were regarded as symbols of longevity, and the idea was introduced to Japan, where it has been revered as a bird of good fortune.

Famous Origami Paper Crane

During the FIAA World Cup in Qatar, the Japanese national team impressed fans when they left their dressing room at the Khalifa International Stadium in spotless condition. They also left origami paper cranes, a symbol of good fortune and longevity in Japan, in the dressing room.

History of Origami Crane

The origami cranes were first folded in the Muromachi period (1336-1573) as a wish for longevity. Later, during the Edo period (1603-1867), the "senbazuru" (a thousand folded paper cranes) were made to pray for recovery from illness and longevity, as they are made today. Today, they are also valued as a symbol of peace and good fortune.
