Used: this kakejiku is very old, therefore it's obviously in a poor condition: it has yellowed with age, there is plenty of foxing and the top hanging rail is missing. Also please note that the box originally contained two kakejiku but we only have one, the other one is missing. All our kakejiku are genuine vintage so will have holes, scratches, foxing, stains and odours in varying degrees. Some are in a very good condition and some are really old so please study all the photos carefully so that you can decide if the item is in a good enough condition for you.
Please note: we do our very best to take photos that show the true colours of the items we sell but colours will always vary slightly from one computer to another.

The kakejiku measures 187cm x 53cm
The box measures 60cm x 11.5cm x 9.5cm
Weight of the hanging scroll and box together: 875gr
