Senbazuru (1000 Cranes)

Creator: Traditional Japanese design
Folder: Unknown (probably many people)
Photographer: Joseph Wu

I found these garlands of cranes at a Buddhist temple in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo. Note that the old garlands have been kept and have suffered the ravages of weather. I wonder what people were wishing for when they hung the cranes there.
