A calligraphy scroll, handwritten by the renowned 19th Century Japanese swordsman, Isami Kondo, had been recently found in the city of Kyoto, it was revealed.

The 196-centimeter-long and 63-centimeter-wide scroll represents a Chinese-style poem on the topic of heroism, which experts believe Kondo wrote for a wealthy merchant in gratitude for his financial support.
