Description

Raitei Arima is one of the representative monks of Kyoto and an art collector. He is the director of Joutenkaku Museum. Joutenkaku Museum is an art museum located in Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture. The Joutenkaku Museum was built at the side of Reihou-den Hall of the Shoukoku-ji Temple in 1984 as part of the project commemorating the 600th anniversary of the founding of the Shoukoku-ji Temple. It stores and exhibits Cultural Properties (five National Treasures and 136 National Important Cultural Properties) including writings, paintings, and handicrafts owned by the Shoukoku-ji Temple, the Rokuon-ji Temple (Kinkaku-ji Temple) and the Jishou-ji Temple (Ginkaku-ji Temple) that are affiliated with the Shoukoku-ji School of the Rinzai Zen sect. Also, Manno Museum (Osaka City), which closed in 2004, donated approximately 200 National Treasures and Important Cultural Properties to Joutenkaku Museum. It had reconstruction in commemoration of the 600th anniversary of the death of Yoshimitsu ASHIKAGA, the founder of the Shoukoku-ji Temple, and all sections were reopened on May 13, 2007. The exhibition area was doubled in size, making it possible to permanently exhibit many items {including all fifty faces of “Rokuon-ji Oosho-in Shouhekiga” (Wall painting in Oosho-in Room of Rokuon-ji Temple) by Jakuchuu ITOU} that were not exhibited due to lack of space. This is a wonderful art museum.
Raitei Arima is closely related to this museum, so he has an experienced eye for art. It’s not too much to say that this work created by him is packed with Japanese aesthetic senses.

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.
