Souvenir / Lovely Guest from the USA

american customer

 

2 days ago, we had a lovely guest from the USA.
His name is Daniel-san. He came to Kobe city for his business and dropped in at our store and the gallery.
What a nice surprise! It was our first time to welcome a guest from overseas.

 

He was looking for Japanese souvenirs for himself, his family and friends. His favorite art motif was owl and sparrow and he bought some hanging scrolls, an incense holder and a miniature folding screen.

 

While our staff does the packing, we went for a lunch together.
It is a local Sushi restaurant called “Masuda-ya” (Approx. 10mins walk from us.)

Our town, Tarumi is a fishing-village that is located in the western Kobe.
You can enjoy fresh seafood at a reasonable price. (Sushi, Sashimi and of course Japanese food like Tempura)
Highly recommended for lunch and early dinner. (Last call for food is at 20:00pm)

 

Thank you for coming all the way here, Daniel-san! We had a wonderful time.

We received a heart-warming review on TripAdvisor page from Daniel-san. Thank you so much!!

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Art Nomura, Kobe. I was interested in buying some traditional Japanese scroll paintings (kakajiku). I was warmly welcomed by the the entire family and shown great hospitality, a perfect way to view various examples of styles and themes. The family’s patience and hospitality made the experience one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Tomoko spoke excellent English and was able to explain the various pieces and the family was very fair in their pricing. In the end, I purchased 4 scroll paintings, which they pressed and packaged for my trip home. After shopping, the family was kind enough to treat me to a delicious sushi lunch. Art Nomura is the place for kakajiku and I would recommend it to anyone interested in Japanese art. The quality of their artist is exceptional and their selection is excellent.

 

 

We have a wide variety of hanging scrolls so let us help you find the one that suits your preference and budget.
We also have home decor items such as framed paintings, incense holders, miniature folding screens and so on.

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.
