Tokyo Scroll

東京 is the Japanese and Chinese title for Tokyo, capital of Japan.

It is written the same in both languages but pronounced quite differently in Chinese.

kagune / kakuko
Kagune Scroll

When pronounced as Kagune in the context of Tokyo Ghoul, this is a ghoul's predatory organ and functions as their weapon and claws.

This actually means shining or awe-inspiring child and is also the female given name Kakuko in Japan.

Om Mani Padme Hum

Oṃ maṇi padme hūṃ
ǎn mó nǐ bō míng hǒu
on mani padomei un
Om Mani Padme Hum Scroll

唵麼抳鉢訥銘吽 is one of the earliest and best known mantras in the Buddhist tradition.

It can be heard in temples from Tokyo to Tibet.

This mantra is an expression of the basic attitude of compassion. It translates literally as, "oṃ the jewel in the lotus hūṃ".

There are several titles and transliterations for this mantra, including, 六字大明呪 (Great 6-syllable mantra), 六字真言 (6-syllable Sanskrit mantra of Avalokiteshvara bodhisattva), 唵嘛呢叭咪吽, 唵嘛呢叭咪哞, and 唵嘛咪叭呢哞.

This usually refers to a genre of tokusatsu films. These films feature monsters that often attack Tokyo or fight with other monsters. The most internationally-famous of these is the Godzilla franchise of movies.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
