    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
    UPDATE JAN/2013
    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!
