KIRI-BAKO, the special boxes for storing hanging scrolls

I recommend that you keep the hanging scrolls in the „KIRI-BAKO“ , when you don’t hang it.

In Japan we use „KIRI-BAKO“, paulownia wood boxes, for storing valuable items as KIMONO, rare metals, pottery, lacquerware, SHODO artworks and so on.

Paulownia wood protects these delicate items from being damaged by the changes in temperature and humidity.

Below you will see interesting videos about „KIRI-BAKO“.
