These multicolored ribbons are actually innumerable paper cranes strung together. There is a myth in Japan that if you fold a thousand paper cranes your wish will come true. One of the many children that developed cancer from the radiation of the blast believed the story and folded countless cranes before she died of leukemia. In rememberance of her and the other children victims there are hundreds of thousands of paper cranes placed upon the monuments.
