Origin: Made in Japan

In Japanese culture, cranes and turtles are considered symbols of luck and longevity, and they hold special significance in various contexts.

1. Cranes (Tsuru):
   - Symbol of Longevity and Good Fortune: Cranes are believed to live for a thousand years in Japanese folklore. As a result, they are seen as symbols of longevity and good fortune.
   - **Origami Tradition:** The folding of origami cranes, known as "orizuru," is a popular Japanese tradition. It is believed that folding a thousand paper cranes can make a wish come true or bring good luck. This practice gained international attention through the story of Sadako Sasaki, a young girl who folded paper cranes while battling leukemia after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

2. Turtles (Kame):
   - Symbol of Longevity and Immortality:Turtles are associated with longevity and immortality in Japanese culture. The belief is that turtles live long lives and carry the world on their backs.
   - Crane and Turtle Together: The combination of a crane and a turtle is often seen as particularly auspicious, symbolizing the wish for a long and fortunate life.

These symbols are deeply ingrained in Japanese traditions, art, and folklore. They are often used in celebrations, decorations, and gifts to convey positive wishes for health, happiness, and a long life. The cultural significance of these symbols has also spread beyond Japan, and they are recognised and appreciated in various parts of the world.
