This Ukiyo-e (Floating World) woodblock print is from Hiroshige’s renowned¬†series “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” and shows red-crowned cranes at play in front of some Edo-area villages.

Japanese Samurai families would take the symbol of the crane into their home and onto their family crest as they were meant to bring good fortune and a long life. Today, we admire their grace, but remember the thought behind this beautiful bird and offer it as a gift to people we love and respect: family, friends, or sensei!
