Kakejiku - Japanese Wall Scroll

Kakejiku

Japanese Hanging Wall Scroll

The Kakejiku is a Japanese hanging wall scroll used for displaying calligraphy or important artwork.
Typically hung in tokonoma (built-in alcove) or on walls, it has played a very important part in Japanese interior design since the Kamakura period.(12-14th century)

During the 14th-16th century (Muromachi Period) the Kakejiku increased significantly in popularity due to the teachings of the great tea master Sen no Rikyu.
