The cooked rice offering is placed on the altar of the enshrined Buddhist deity. One example is the early Kamakura period busshouya at the *Nigatsudou “ñŒŽ“° of Toudaiji “Œ‘厛 in Nara, which is a 5 x 2 bay structure with a gable roof *kirizuma-zukuri ØÈ‘¢, covered with thatch *hongawarabuki –{Š¢•˜. A covered opening at the top of the roof allows smoke to escape, as in some farmhouses, nouka ”_‰Æ. Large vertically set planks form the entrance that fills one bay on the gable end. Diagonal braces *sasu LŽñ, positioned on either side of a center strut *tsuka ‘©, are visible in the gable pediments. Double neck penetrating struts *hinuki ”òŠÑ, extend beyond the corner pillars and have nosings *kibana –Ø•@, in the daibutsu style *daibutsuyou ‘啧—l. The floor is hard packed earth with stones spread on top and can be seen extending beyond the walls of the building.
