Hanging Scrolls and Folding Screens
Conveying the Japanese Four Seasons, Spirits, and Philosophies, and Extending Hospitality to Guests

In Japan, people change hanging scrolls according to the season. The popular motifs of such scrolls include natural grasses, flowers, animals and scenery. Viewers of the scrolls appreciate the new arrival of each season. While receiving influence from China in terms of painting themes and techniques, Japanese scrolls have undergone their own original development in terms of decorative beauty and expressive techniques.
