Beauty rolls

Discover the shelves of this fabulous store between prints displaying the graceful curves of women or undulating landscapes of Japan and stylized paintings with a priceless cachet, you will find something to satisfy your desires.

The Kakejiku are similar to  pictorial works or calligraphy produced on rolls of paper. A Kakejiku is traditionally placed on the wall of a tokonoma, a small alcove with a raised floor, in a tea room. But it can perfectly suit a modern interior. Tessaido specializes in Kakejiku artists since the Edo period (1603-1868) to the present day. About three thousand works belong the collection of this traditional store.

It is possible to buy a superb Kakejiku for a modest sum, from 10 000 yen. Nearby, there is a Tessaido gallery with an exhibition of paintings by Kyoto artists. Note that Kakejiku are sold in wooden boxes and can be easily be transported in your suitcase.
