The Timing to Remount

Dirt / Stains

Dirt or stains may occur in a “kakejiku” (hanging scroll) due to various problems with how it was stored.
Dirt or stains will get worse if you ignore them, and then a precious work will be spoiled.

sam-shimi01 There are the stains on this kakejiku due to rain leakage.
sam-shimi02 The stains spread all over this kakejiku.
sam-shimi03 There is dirt with soot and stains on this kakejiku.
sam-shimi04 The stains spread all over this kakejiku.

Crease

Creases result from repeated rolling and unrolling of a kakejiku.
They are the cause of friction in the fabric or the main work as well as exfoliation of the pigments.

sam-ore01 There are creases everywhere on this kakejiku due to heavy use.
sam-ore02 This work is severely damaged. There are innumerable creases on the work.
This condition indicates that the work is in danger of breaking.

sam-ore05 This work has begun to tear. In this condition, it is very fragile.

Holes made by worms

Worms may eat through a kakejiku due it being kept in a bad storage environment. We can replace the mounting fabrics of the kakejiku, but it may be very difficult to repair the main work.

sam-mushikui01 There are many holes in this work. We can’t display the kakejiku like this, so repair is necessary. However, we can not repair the calligraphy completely.
sam-mushikui02 There are some holes in the mounting fabric, but the main work has not been damaged yet, fortunately.

Tears / Holes / Breakage

Severe damage may cause tears, holes, or breakage. They need repair.

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.
