Custom Japanese Scrolls

These Japanese Scrolls, called kakemono, are beautiful works of art hand-lettered by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase. Each calligraphy piece is a unique work of art individually created when your order is placed. Scrolls are completed in as little as a few days.

These Japanese made scrolls use all Japanese materials include Japanese paper and high-quality silk. The scrolls arrive ready to hang and are designed to last generations.

We provide a wide range of ready made designs that you can choose from. For some ideas see our selection of Japanese Haiku Designs. As an example, the work on the left is a haiku by Basho composed on the death of his dear friend Issho who was a man of talent that died before his time. One translation is "Shake even the grave, My wailing is the autumn wind". For much more information on this poem see H3022 Haiku by Basho

We also offer completely custom scrolls in two sizes: The medium scroll is 12 1/4" W x 43" H and the Large which is 18" W x 72" H. While the scroll sizes are fixed we would be delighted to work with you to create custom calligraphy that matches your needs and taste.

Each work is a unique piece hand-lettered by Master Takase when your order is placed. Scrolls are normally completed in a few business days.

Custom Japanese Scroll Medium (12 1/4" W x 43" H) $260 -> $220

Custom Japanese Scroll Large (18" W x 72" H) $450

These larger scrolls are perfect for complete wall coverage as in entrances to the homes, Dojo or for the tokonoma.

The scroll on the left was created to match an existing scroll with a few modifications. It came out wonderfully. My thanks go to Sensei Tracy Corder for sharing this photo. And if you looking to learn the authentic Ninpo and are in the Federal Way area of Washington state then please visit Sensei Corder's website Kogen Ninpo Dojo to learn more.


"I was recently asked to create a scroll reflecting the style of another master. This was certainly a challenge but the scroll came out beautifully. Below is an example of my Large Custom Japanese Scroll with a custom Kiri (Japanese Cedar) Presentation Box."

Dear Eri,

Thank you so much for your work on this beautiful scroll. I received it a few days ago and was awestruck by its fluid beauty and grace. I am currently thinking of another scroll to get from you and will be in touch very soon. In closing have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
