Hold the jikusaki with both hands, and roll up the kakejiku slowly.
When you roll it up around halfway, hold the kakejiku in your left hand and hold the yahazu (the forked edge of a bamboo stick) in your right hand. Then take the kakeo (a string attached to the top) off from the nail or hook.
Put down the upper part of kakejiku carefully not to fold it. Then take off the yahazu and put it on the floor. Finish rolling it up.
As for the kakejiku with fuutai (a pair of strips of cloth or paper hanging from the top), first, fold the fuutai on the left hand side into the bottom of the other fuutai on the right hand side. If the fuutai is too long, bend it along a creased line.
When there is a makigami (a piece of paper which is 5 to 7 cm wide and 20 to 25 cm long), roll it up with the kakejiku folding its edge into the kakejiku.
Hold the kakejiku in your left hand and hold the makio (a string connected to kakeo [a string attached to the top]) in your right and tie the makio aroud the kakejiku three times from the left to the right (the same direction in which the kakejiku was rolled up). The makio of the kakejiku, mounted a Buddhist painting or “myougou” (the name of the Buddha) calligraphy, tends to be longer, so tie the makio around the kakejiku three times or more.
Make a ring at the edge of the makio and pass it through the lower right of kakeo. Then once again, pass it through the lower left portion of kakeo.
Wrap it with “momigami” (a piece of paper soften by crumpling) and put it in a “jiku-bako” (a box for kakejiku).
