I want to know more of all the Japanese and Indonesian artwork I have, but I’ll start one at a time.  This is (was) a scroll that bought at a small market outside of Tokyo about 35 years ago.  Unfortunately, the paper is so thin that throughout my years of showing it to others and moving back to The States, has ripped away from both dowels.

Although I did not take a good pic of the red signature, I’m hoping the other writing in black might help to understand it more.  And based on the info, would it be worth sending it to be repaired?

    I dont know who the artist is, but the scroll looks very much like a scroll by Hokusai available at this url:
