Seven Virtues of Bushido

There are seven virtues associated with Bushido [The Way of the Warrior]. These are shown below individually and together as original works of art.

For an excellent book on the subject see Bushido, The Soul of Japan by Inazo Nitobe. Thanks to Project Gutenberg this book originally published in 1908 is on-line and free to everyone.


Japanese Bushido Calligraphy
Non-Custom Art

These original designs by Master Takase are available unframed in the three sizes: 8 x 12" (20 x 30 cm), 12 x 18" (30 x 45 cm); and 15 x 22" (38 x 55 cm). We would also be happy to cut the paper to size (charging the original paper size) should you need a smaller size.

Each work is personally hand-brushed and signed by Master Takase at the time of our order. The art is on special hand-made Japanese paper that we import directly from the papermaker in Kyushu and is perfect for Western-style framing. We do encourage our clients to order the art unframed and have it framed locally.

We also offer one framed option that is 16 x 20" (40 x 50 cm); with a black metal frame and double mat (black inner, white outer) and appears very similar to the samples shown below. Framed art arrives ready to display.
