Shikishi colored paper is usually square, while tanzaku is a simplified form made of rectangular cardboard. Both are used for write calligraphy and to inscribe poetry. The wabonchō is a traditional book created to hold haiku, waka poems, paintings, travel diaries, etc. Various types of wabonchō exist, including those made with folded paper, scrolls or those bound by thread. Shikishi was originally a general name for dyed paper. During the Heian period (8th century), shikishi came to be used for songbooks and poetry anthologies. It also became a part of landscape and Buddhist paintings used to decorate folding screens or sliding doors. The technique of taking a poem written on colored paper and attaching it to a door or screen painting is known as shikishi-gata. In the Kamakura period (13th century), the current form of writing calligraphy on square cardboard paper became established, and the paper could be colored by with dyes, sprinkled with gold dust or decorated with gold and silver foil.Traditional papermaking developed in Kyoto because of the presence of the Imperial Court and the temples, and even today, more than 90% of domestic colored paper and strips are produced in Kyoto.
