■About Japanese “Kanji”

Japanese culture, the history of Kanji
Kanji are characters that originate from China and are a culture that has been handed down.
It is said that they made their way to Japan somewhere around the 5th and 6th centuries, and formed the basis for Hiragana and Katakana. They are the foundation for the character culture of Japan.
In present day, Kanji are making their way outside of Japan and the word is making its way around the world.

■About Japanese “Hanging Scroll”

・Hanging scrolls in Japan's "exhibition alcoves"
Japanese homes that respect traditions have a space known as the "exhibition alcove."
This is a "seat of honor" made in a guest room that uses tatami mats, and is considered a sacred space.
It is also a space where highly artistic objects such as flower vases and hanging scrolls are displayed.

・Items that make up a sacred space
Spaces that are adorned with hanging scrolls are called "seats of honor," and as they are understood to be a place where sacred objects are contained, these scrolls are used as a tool to create this sacred space.
They are often adorned along with swords (*1) Buddhist ritualistic instruments, and are often depicted along with portable shrines (*2) that praise the gods.

*1...This refers to Japanese swords. If it is a fake sword which has no edge, you can find them in stores.
*2...These are vehicles that gods ride on that are carried during festivals, and are usually offered to Shinto shrines.
*3...These are festivals that are held to give continuing gratitude to the gods. They are events that bring people closer to the gods.
