Japanese Scrolls, otherwise known as kakejiku, provide a wonderful wall hanging to incorporate into the interior decoration of your home or office. In Japanese culture, Japanese Hanging Scrolls are traditionally displayed in a room to enhance the display of prized objects, such as bonsai or ikebana, and can be easily and quickly changed to match the season or occasion.
Hanging Scrolls were introduced to Japan during the Heian period, used primarily for displaying Buddhist images for religious veneration, or to display calligraphy or poetry. The Japanese Shop has a great selection of Japanese Hanging Scrolls featuring landscapes, flowers, birds and poetry. The minimalistic design of our Japanese Hanging Scrolls makes them able to fit seamlessly into many interiors, offering a cultural and stylish point of interest to a room. Some of our Japanese Scrolls have been lovingly hand-painted by a talented Japanese artist and calligrapher, Saren Nagata, who is also a valued friend of The Japanese Shop!
