We carefully make our customers' ink wash paintings and calligraphy works into kakejiku hanging scrolls one-by-one by hand. Tenugui hand towels bought at exhibitions and museums can be processed into kakejiku and Panel Ja!. Come and create your own one-of-a-kind kakejiku for decorating your room.

Hyoso is a traditional craft of mounting artworks using adhesives to glue together paper and fabric. This technique is utilized in fusuma doors, kakejiku hanging scrolls, shōji screens, and other various invaluable elements of Japanese architecture.
Teramoto Shoten was founded before World War 2 in the early Showa Era as a wholesale store of paperhanging materials and architectural fittings in Sakae, Nagoya City. After the store burned down during the war, we moved to Kodama, Nishi Ward in Nagoya where we are now located. Since being a wholesaler, we have come to the present through a mounting shop.
You are welcome to visit our classes. Our accommodating instructors will offer guidance so that even beginners can work comfortably on their creations.

Recreating into compact,
lightweight scrolls

Do you have hanging scrolls tucked away in closets, storage rooms, or cellars? Why not bring them back to life?

Using our mounting techniques, we have created pieces that complement both Japanese and Western-style architecture. Lightweight and easy to hang, they can also be your season/event enjoyments.
Currently in use at the Japanese Culture Workshop of Jidaiya in Asakusa, Tokyo.
At Teramoto, we accomplish scroll mounting by hand. It takes approximately 2 months to complete. The hand-mounted scrolls are dried slowly, which ultimately makes them more durable. The use of Japanese adhesives produced in a traditional way allows the mounted works to peel off with water even after many years. Future remakes are possible.
