hi...i am hoping someone can tell me what my asian calligraphy says? i was going to remove it from the frame but it is in there pretty good lol and i would probably ruin it if i forced it is matted with white silk and the silk has a small stain...looks like a tea stain...i wanted to remove the calligraphy and try to clean it but it proved to be too difficult for me to do alone so i will leave it for now...when i took the back off it had alot of layered asian writing newspaper...i was hoping to find a date or the name of a city or town but i don't read chinese so for now i know absolutely nothing about this calligraphy....thanks for looking and i welcome any this site!
sorry about the flash i couldn't remove the calligraphy out of the frame
well I have narrowed it down and I am pretty sure this is written in Japanese! lol...of course I still can not read Japanese but I have been able to match a character or two so far....still don't know what it says but I still have hope that a CW member will of these for looking and love this site!

    The calligraphy is no doubt that in Chinese with proper mounting of silk. You may take it down, roll it, and take to remounting. In Hong Kong this is easy to find the master to do it. But I really don't know how can do it in your country.
    The calligarphy dated on 5 of october, 1985. I'm afraid that the calligraphy is a printed one not by real hand writing. You may read it carefully that the same character in different line seemed exactly the same. And especially chicky that it "written" like with a format. Usually the Chinese writer won't do this. But anyway for decoration, this is good enough. The content itself is about a famous scoholar in one thousand years before, talking that ten things will make you feeling regert.
