The Kakemono is in the form of a roll, supported by a thin semi-cylindrical wooden stick at its upper end and weighted by a cylindrical wooden stick of greater diameter at its lower end, which is unrolled for the hang on the wall. In the tea ceremony, or in traditional-style Japanese houses, the kakejiku is hung in the tokonoma, a sort of diffused alcove described in Tanizaki's famous essay, Praise of the Shadow. The support of the kakejiku is called hyōsō (表 装).
A kakemono presents a painting on silk or on paper, it can also be a support for calligraphy.
Its ends are masked by a piece of ivory, horn, red sandalwood, lacquer, ceramic or crystal, the colors and patterns of which must harmonize with the work. The design of an artisanal kakejiku is very demanding and is entrusted only to specialists.
Rolled up and stored in a box, preferably in paulownia wood, the kakejiku must be accompanied by a small mothproof bag, especially if, as is most often the case, the fabric used for the framing is silk .
For the tea ceremony, the choice of the kakemono that adorns the room (chashitsu) is important and it is chosen in harmony with the seasons. There are also sets of four panels evoking the four seasons
