Description

Taneda Santōka (1882-1940) was a haiku poet. He was born in Yamaguchi Pref. He was born the eldest son of a landowner to be a monk after the family of his birth went bankrupt. He traveled around the country, leaving behind many free verse haiku.

This work features such Taneda Santōka’s haiku written by modern Zen monk Takahashi Yūhō, renowned as an expert calligrapher. The haiku reads as below.

“Whenever I see a mountain in front of me, I just look at the mountain. Whenever it is rainy, I just listen to the sound of the rain. If you can accept things with that kind of mindlessness, you will always have the best moments from morning to night throughout the year, spring, summer, fall, and winter.”

Takahashi Yūhō added the Zen phrase “Hibikorekōjutsu (Every Single Day Is Wonderful.)” next to this haiku, which indicates the haiku’s meaning. Drawing a circle in their background then gives the whole work a sense of unity. A circle is called “ensō (circularity)” in the world of Zen to be thought to symbolize “Satori (enlightenment).” This is because the continuous flowing movement of the circle, which has no beginning and no end and is never caught in a corner, has been understood as representing the Buddhist teaching of a mind free of captivity and free from attachment.

This is a very prestigious work, interspersing with essences that allude to the state of enlightenment in Buddhism.

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.
