How to create Japanese scroll sets?

Japanese hanging scrolls (kakemono) were introduced to Japan in the Nara period (710-794 C.E.) and were originally used to display Buddhist texts, as well as calligraphy or poetry. They were hung in the alcove (tokonoma) of a tea room and are usually selected for the appropriateness of both the season and the time of day. A set of scrolls usually consists of three scrolls.

With this resource you can create your own Japanese scrolls! There are three scrolls, one vertically on the left, one horizontally in the middle and one vertically on the right. You can use the text tool to write your own message on each scroll.

Enter your Japanese text in each of the three scrolls. You can also change the color of the text and background. Then decide if you want the middle banner to read left to right or right to left. After that, hit the generate button and you're done!

You can create them as one image or three different images to share on Facebook, Twitter and other social media or just print out to keep. The images are all ready to go and different sizes. Just choose the size you need and download the PDF. The largest image can print out on one banner per A4 sheet.
