Custom Made Shikishi-gake for a Bonsai Lover in Canada

Bonsai (盆栽) is a Japanese traditional art known as “living art”. It gained international popularity and there are many enthusiasts all over the world for its high artistic quality. “Bonsai” has now become an English loanword of Japanese origin.

Referring to our articles on the popularity of Bonsai and on shikishi-gake scrolls a little while ago, one day, we received an inquiry of custom made shikishi-gake scrolls from a Bonsai lover in Canada.

The customer requested us to make shikishi-gake scrolls little bit shorter in height 80 cm with the same width. (The height dimension of our standard shikishi-gake is approx. 106 cm.) This is because the panel in the back of the trees exposed measured 4 feet (120 cm) in North America.

We advised that the scrolls with 80 cm length will be mounted into Maru-mounting style due to short length.

We made 2 shikishi-gake scrolls with grey fabric. They will show shikishi boards with haiku poem by Bashō, Buson or Ryōkan according to the season.

We are very happy to hear the lovely comment, ”Everything is perfect!”, from the customer. Thank you very much.

Our company handles various kinds of shikishi-gake and can also handle the requests of custom orders. If you need any assistance, please feel free to let us know. Thank you for reading this post.

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.
