Nice Japanese Souvenir

kakejiku souvenir
The number of people from other countries who are interested in Japanese culture has been increasing recently.

They often buy Japanese traditional crafts as souvenirs.

Because of that, things like the Nambu “tekki” ironware cast pot and the randseru(school backpacks) have become very popular among them.

The kakejiku (Japanese hanging scroll) is very popular, too.

Taishi High School

 

This time, we are requested by the Taishi high school for a kakejiku as Japanese souvenir for a sister school in
Australia.

The Taishi High School has an international exchange program with the school in Australia.

Globalization has been advancing lately. Therefore, a multicultural coexistence is necessary.

Since Japan is an island country, it is very important to engage in international exchange activity in a positive manner.

It will be wonderful experience for the students to have such an opportunity during their school days.

 

We are glad that the kakejiku is selected as a Japanese souvenir.

Our client wanted a distinctly Japanese kakejiku, so we prepared some options.

 

Mt. Fuji with cranes
This is the one the client chose.
 

Mt. Fuji, the symbol of Japan, was listed as a World Heritage site, so it is becoming more and more popular around the world.

The red color of the sun and the white of the mountain top resemble the flag of Japan.

Cranes are also symbols of Japan. They have been considered to be a symbol of longevity since ancient times, so as an auspicious bird, cranes have been depicted with Mt. Fuji.

 

The kakejiku crossed the sea and arrived to the school in Australia.

The box that is on the round table is the kakejiku.

We are glad that the kakejiku box was wrapped with a special wrapping paper called “noshigami“, which is for gifts.

 

Japanese souvenir

 The kakejiku was debuted.

 

In Japan, many paintings like this were developed in ancient times to be hung in “tokonoma” alcoves which is why they have vertical orientations.

The kakejiku was as tall as a person’s stature, so it was very dynamic and impressive.

We are very glad the staff in Australia were pleased with the souvenir.

 

friendly atmosphere

The meeting was successfully completed in a friendly atmosphere.

 


 

As a kakejiku manufacturer, We are pleased that this traditional Japanese art form has crossed the sea and is delighting people in other countries. We will continue to share the charm of kakejiku all over the world.

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.
