Ukiyo-e Kakejiku

What is especially popular as a souvenir among the people is “Ukiyo-e kakejiku.”

Ukiyo-e is a genre of the pictorial arts that originated during the Edo period. Bold composition and bright colors are typical of Ukiyo-e. Ukiyo-e are perhaps the most famous Japanese visual art in the world.

Ukiyo-e were originally woodblock prints, but there are now many reprinted versions of Ukiyo-e thanks to recent advancement in printing technology. However, most of them are framed. They are too bulky to carry easily, so they are therefore slightly inconvenient as souvenirs or gifts. Even if you only get the work itself, you will have to take it to a frame shop. Moreover, if you want to change position of the framed work on your gallery wall depending on how you feel during the day, it will be a little bothersome because of its bulk and weight. If you want to store the work until the best position is decided, it will take up a lot of space. You can never fold it.

 

I considered what to do to get more people to enjoy Ukiyo-e, whose popularity hasn’t declined yet. And then, I thought of Ukiyo-e Kakejiku.

Japanese people enjoy changing paintings depending on occasions, guests and the seasons. The kakejiku (Japanese hanging scroll) is the most suitable form of picture in terms of allowing ease in changing the paintings at any time. The beauty of scrolls is that they can be rolled up, which makes them compact, portable and easy to store. Moreover the kakejiku is very light and easy to handle. Ukiyo-e Kakejiku makes good use of the features of the kakejiku. You can easily change your own wall gallery depending on how you feel that day.

In addition, the mounting, which is both decorative and also serves to protect the main work, is called the hyougu. People see the combination of the two as one work of art and appreciate this. Elegant, gorgeous damask (donsu) and gold brocade (kinran), made in the Nishijin district of Kyoto, are used for the Ukiyo-e Kakejiku. Compared with dull frames, hyougu can give a more unique atmosphere to your room.

Our Feelings For Kakejiku


 The Japanese people have long set a high value on aesthetic senses since ancient times. As a result, the
peculiar culture which is not seen in other countries blossomed and many aspects of the modern Japanese
culture come from it. Parts of Japanese culture has been introduced to people in other countries recently,
so the number of people from other countries who are interested in Japanese culture has been increasing.
However, the Japanese aesthetic senses, which are the bases of Japanese culture, have been nurtured
through a long history, intertwining various elements intricately, such as climate, geographical features,
religion, customs and so on. Therefore, they are very difficult to understand not only for people from other
countries, but even for the Japanese people. I think the best tool which conveys these difficult senses
understandably is a “kakejiku.”
 The kakejiku (a hanging scroll; a work of calligraphy or a painting which is mounted and hung in an
alcove or on a wall) is a traditional Japanese art. It's no exaggeration to say that paintings are what
express aesthetic senses at all times and places. The kakejiku is an art which expresses the Japanese
aesthetic senses. The kakejiku has long been used in traditional Japanese events, daily life and so on since
ancient times. As a result, there are various customs of kakejiku in Japan; kakejiku and the life of the
Japanese are closely related. We can see Japanese values through kakejiku.
 The kakejiku is a cultural tradition which the Japanese people should be proud of. However, many people
in other countries don't know much about it because it hasn't been showcased as much. This is why I
decided to try to introduce it. The kakejiku world is very interesting and beautiful. We want not only the
Japanese, but also many people from other countries to know and enjoy it. I hope that many people will
love kakejiku someday.
