The husband is from Sri Lanka.
When he was a child, he was given a calendar with some Japanese-style paintings as a present so he had a strong interest in Japanese-style paintings and had been wanting to get real ones in Japan.

He requested us for cranes paintings so we showed him some different hanging scrolls, searching together for the one that suits his preference.
He paints by himself, so he was particular about the shape of cranes, color of background, composition, material of a work and so on.

He looked like he was having fun talking with his wife about where to display a kakejiku in their house.

He finally selected the kakejiku far right of the photo.
Cranes are perennially monogamous breeders, establishing long-term pair bond that may last the lifetime of the birds, so this kakejiku is apposite to them since they are newlyweds!

It was getting late and they wanted to eat sushi so we went for a dinner together.
It is a local Sushi restaurant called “Ebis”.

 

 

We had kind words from them.

 

I’m very grateful for all the time you spent with us in helping to select all the paintings.

Your shop, I think, has the biggest collection of the scrolls and the paintings I have seen in Japan during this visit and your prices are very reasonable.

Thank you for your discounts given to me today.

I look forward to doing more business with you.

Thank you very much for your time.

 

We have many kinds of hanging scrolls so please come over and have a chat with us.

Let us find something that is just right for you.

We will continue to convey the appeal of the 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.
