Japan Fukushima

Papiroflex = Papiroflexia = Origami

Origami (折り紙, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper"; kami changes to gami due to rendaku) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.

This folding quest was performed today on the city center, we just fold 4, but I am sure that by the end of the day the 1000 was easily achieved. There were allready a couple of hundreds when we arrive and there was a lot of people folding together.
