Kinds and List of Renzuru【Hiden-Senbazuru-Orikata】



On this site, I’ve considered and posted how to fold “連鶴/Renzuru” while referencing diagrams in the book which is “秘伝千羽鶴折形/Hiden-Senbazuru-Orikata”.
The book was published in 1797.

Renzuru means connected-cranes which are made of only one paper without glue and tape.

In the book – Hiden-Senbazuru-Orikata, there are 49 models of Renzuru.

I posted how to fold 46 models other than Hyakkaku, Karyobin and Tsurihune.

There are pictures of 46 completed models on this page.
I separated 46 models by 6 types.

If you click Renzuru’s name, you will move to pages which are how to fold the model.
