Description

Mt. Yoshino has been the most well known cherry blossom site in Japan since ancient times. Yoshino is covered all over by around 8 km of hiking trails, from the north end to the south end of the Oomine mountain range. Yoshino serves as a base for pilgrims who climb Mt. Oomine as an act of worship. One path between Yoshino-Oomine and Yuya is called Oomine Okukudou, and is still used for religious training. The spiritual sites and paths in Kii, including Mt. Yoshino, have been officially recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. This means the area is registered in the World Heritage list per the World Heritage treaty for the purpose of maintaining the area as an indispensable property shared by all humans. The whole of Mt. Yoshino is registered as a World Heritage site: you can walk around and visit various World Heritage buildings including Yoshino Mikumari Shrine, Kinpu Shrine, Kinpusenji Temple and Yoshimizu Shrine.

Katsunobu Kawahito lives in Daito City, Osaka Prefecture. The Kyoto/Nara area, which has many subjects for paintings, is easily accessible from there. Whenever he has time, he goes there to sketch. He has improved his painting skills there, and this painting of the cherry blossoms on Mt. Yoshino was inspired by the locale. You can see how happy spring made him by looking at his lively brush strokes.

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.
