Origami cranes made by President Obama donated to Nagasaki

Most Saturday morning dailies wrote that Ambassador Kennedy presented two origami cranes made by President Obama to Nagasaki Mayor Taue when he visited the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo on Friday. In response to the “surprise gift,” the Nagasaki leader asked the Ambassador to convey to the President his appreciation for promoting a “world without nuclear weapons.” President Obama reportedly asked Ambassador Kennedy last November to deliver to Nagasaki two of the cranes that he made when he visited Hiroshima last May. Asahi added that a New Year’s card that the Ambassador sent to the Nagasaki Peace Memorial Museum included a photo of the President and the Ambassador folding origami cranes together. The cranes will be displayed at the museum from Jan. 7 through Mar. 31.
