How to Handle Video
The kakejiku is made from silk, Japanese paper, wood, and special paste, so please avoid hanging it in an environment that is too moist, or too dry. Please pay attention to the following to keep it in good condition:
1. Don’t hang the kakejiku in a room in which an air conditioner is running continuously.
2. Avoid extended hanging; periodically roll the kakejiku up.
3. When storing the kakejiku, keep it away from humidity.
4. When storing the kakejiku, don’t roll it up tightly. (If you roll the kakejiku up tightly, you may damage it.)
5. The kakejiku is vulnerable to both humidity and dryness; therefore, it should be put in a paulownia box and kept in a place with minimum temperature variations. Put insect repellent made of fragrant wood in the box. Insect repellent, such as those made of naphthalene, may damage the kakejiku.
6. Air the kakejiku twice a year on sunny days.
