Subject:Japanese Scroll
Posted By: Yana Sun, Sep 15, 2019 IP: 2604:2000:8248:a600:

Hi everyone,
Im very curious about this scroll, if you have any thoughts on author, please share! The seller mentioned ITO JAKUCHU, but Im not sure as this scroll has only one seal which could look like ITO JAKUCHU's, but usually on his works you can see two.
Anyways Id be very happy to get any information about this work.
Thank you in advance

Seal in the left lower corner,
若冲居士 - Jakuchu koji - Jakuchu the Lay Buddhist

Inscription on the upper part in my reading and translation,

O-yasashiku tōrei no imōto yara otoko no ko yara
waruhi bera nari to itsumo kotowari

Sisters and boys, gently take a bow,
If it is unpleasant, I am afraid

Unfortunately, the seals of the calligrapher are only partly readable.

With regards,

Dear I.Nagy-san, Thank you so much for your kind response, I really appreciate it!

And thank you so much for the translation, though, this text still seems a little strange to me, what did the author wanted to say? Do you have a ny thoughts?

Kind regards,
