What is Kakejiku Scroll?
Kakejiku or kakemono is the traditional Japanese hanging scroll. In line with the westernization of the Japanese lifestyle and the changing architecture, there are now far fewer homes with tokonoma alcoves to hang Kakejiku of arts of calligraphy and drawing.
They were "musts" for homes of upper-class families, who changed Kakejiku scrolls to match the season. Unlike framed paintings, Kakejiku scrolls do not take large storage space, as they are tightly rolled up and placed in wooden boxes.
