Origami is a traditional part of Japanese culture which involves creating a wide variety of three-dimensional shapes by folding a single piece of paper. The most famous of these is the crane. Origami cranes are popular in Japan as a symbol of peace. Famously, then-US President Barack Obama presented four cranes that he folded himself to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum when he visited the atomic-bombed city of Hiroshima.
Although it may look complicated, origami is actually made using a single piece of paper that can be folded by anyone, with nothing particularly difficult about it. Practice makes perfect. You are now going to become an expert on Japan!
