Founded 50 years ago: Usain Bolt in hanging scroll industry

The origin of our country's hanging scroll dates back to around 850 AC when Chinese brought them to Japan.

Out of all the hanging scrolls produced in Japan, 70% of them are made in Gifu prefecture.

This place is considered as the best suited for production of hanging scrolls, because Nagara river provides the best quality of water with less irons and also it is where Mino paper, a world heritage of high quality paper, has survived through many years until present.

Not only such geographical reasons, but craftsmanship in Gifu have flourished with craftsmen's diligent effort to improve their skills of manufactures on paper and bamboo, necessary materials for hanging scrolls.


Modern lifestyle and hanging scroll

Tokonoma, guest rooms in traditional Japanese households, are where scrolls were usually hanged.

This place always had the important role of hospitality, delivering messages of the owner to the guests and other family members through the layouts and decorations.

The culture of Japanese rooms with Tokonoma and hanging scrolls are valued in Japan, as they work as a messenger.

We, the Kaikakudo Art, with 50 years of history proudly present our fully handmade hanging scrolls.

For Customers

New way of enjoying hanging scrolls

With changes in our lifestyle, there are fewer houses with Japanese rooms that go well with hanging scrolls.

With this trend, we have developed simple yet stylish hanging scrolls that blend well into our modern lifestyle.

Our products can naturally coexist with other art pieces and interior decorations.

By collaborating with many designers, we are challenging the "norm" and attempting to evolve hanging scrolls into one kind of an art.
