When people hung Chinese scroll, PLEASE, please check which side is up. To look at Chinese characters upside down or side ways is hard to accept for people who understand the meaning of the character. This ruins the picture no matter how beautifully the room is decorated.

A lovely house, beautifully decorated. Why did you hang the Chinese double happiness character upside down?

Like ling said, turn it clockwise 90 degree, but it is 'si', means 'temple' and it is a Chinese character, although Japan adapted it.
