I further searched and finally I got an answer! It was not a Japanese tradition but it was a Japanese-American tradition!
Linda's story about the tradition for the bride might be mistake. Since I'd never heard of it, I searched Japanese sites on 1,000 cranes, and found nothing about such a tradition.
In Japan, crane is a symbol of long life and good health. Nowadays, people often make 1,000 cranes and present them to a patient suffering from a disease, to wish their recovery. The tradition for the bride, which is the first I've heard of, isn't popular now.
the good old ways!
I like the conversation.
my japanese club in the school also wants to make that. is is awesome :)
