Japanese still worship Tenjin god especially for academical success. Parents may decorate items related to Tenjin for their children's success.
Japanese people used to put seasonal Kakejiku on each season. People usually hang them for good fortune as each picture has meaning and messages. Kakejiku is made from a picture and a frame. The picture is called Honshi and the frame is called Hyoso. Choosing the materials for Hyoso is as important as picture because bad combinations of Hyoso and picture spoil the entire Kakejiku.
This hanging scroll is Made in Japan. Please note that this is not hand painted but carefully printed by professional craftsmen.
