屏風 partation

I bought a partition for my vacation rental home..... this Japanese partition is made of rice paper framed in a wood. Japanese poem are attached to this partition beautifully. It is an antique but quite a good condition. The partition was kept in this shiny wooden box. Believe me, it was very heavy to bring this box back home with my bicycle (I almost cried....). It looks like a Meiji era item per the seller. I am going to put this at the tatami mat room next to the entrance.


beautiful Japanese antique partition with Japanese poem (waka) on it

These are Japanese poem, but I do not know exactly what it is said. I need to study my Japanese again???

This partition was in this heavy wooden box
