Eight Cranes
Is anyone aware of a folk or fairy tale about eight cranes?

Re: Eight Cranes
You'll often see cranes portrayed in groups of eight in Chinese and Japanese art, but it's apparently symbolic of the "Eight Trigrams" of Feng Shui. I don't know of any folk or fairytales offhand that use the same grouping, though cranes in general often appear.
