Kakejiku is a painting, calligraphy, etc., mounted on paper or cloth as a scroll for hanging on a wall, etc.
It has the axis made from wood or other materials, and paintings or calligraphic pieces are rolled up around it.
It is indispensable for cha-shitsu, a room constructed for tea ceremony, and the unique charm which is different from that of a framed painting comes from somewhere deep within.
