Tools to Preserve Kakejiku (Hanging Scrolls) More Carefully

Nijuubako (Double-structured Paulownia Box) / Futomaki (Roller Clamp)

A “nijuubako” (a double-structured paulownia box) is sometimes used to preserve a kakejiku more carefully. The outer box is a big, lacquered, paulownia box. This preserves a kakejiku more strongly, and shields it better from humidity and dryness.

A “futomaki” (roller clamp) is also sometimes used to preserve a kakejiku more carefully. It is a large roller rod used to cover the already-attached roller rod when rolling a kakejiku. By making the diameter of the roller rod bigger, creasing, distortion, and other forms of tension on the main work can be prevented.

These may be used together, or independently.

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.
