Scroll...Think Japanese...Assistance would be Great


Recommended Posts

Looks like a quotation, letter or declaration...Carefully mounted, I'm guessing 19th C.


Black ink on silk.


                         Aesthetically pleasing overall.



Any comments much appreciated, O Japanese language scholars...



If turns out to be Chinese, pardon par avance...


Many thanks for any help


Warm regards,


Jon B

Looks very interesting. I have no idea what it says. Well, I can pick out the word 三月 (March) and other bits and pieces (議, 道, and the odd hiragana here and there), but nothing that helps me figure out what it says in its entirety. Its almost as if the first section (on the right) is setting up the following sections, which are arranged more like a poem. Maybe a letter, or an explanation of a poem?

 A waka poem of this scroll is Taira-no Tadamori's waka poem. 平忠盛(1096-1153).
