Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum Visits Increase After President Obama's Visit

U.S. President Barack Obama presents two of his hand-folded origami cranes to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima’s Naka Ward on May 27. The photograph, provided by the Foreign Ministry, will be displayed at the museum through the end of August.
My third post on the topic (people are going to start assuming I am a fan of the current president):

HIROSHIMA--A photograph of U.S. President Barack Obama and origami cranes he made to mark his historic visit to this city in May went on display June 30 at the atomic bomb museum here.
Museum officials said visitor numbers have soared since the president's visit to the city.
The photo was exhibited at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum after it was provided by the Foreign Ministry at the request of the city government.

Am still curious to know the back story on who helped him fold these.
