Also written çᏉ, Žè•€‰. Also called kozukuri hajime –Ø‘¢‚èŽn‚ß or onohajime •€Žn‚ß. A carpenter's ceremony performed after New Year's, usually around January 5. Believed to have originated in the Heian period, the ceremony is performed by carpenters on the day work is to begin on a new building. The master carpenter first performs a ritual using a saw *nokogiri ‹˜. He then makes ink markings, sumiuchi –n‘Å, with a *sumitsubo –n’Ù, the tool which holds the ink and marking string and then uses an adze *chouna çá to make ceremonial chips at the lower, middle and upper parts of a timber. The final part of the ceremony requires the master carpenter to use a plane *kanna çî, to carve the character for water mizu …, very lightly into one member. This part of the ritual is called kiyoganna-no-shiki ´çî‚ÌŽ® or itashikiganna ”•~çî.
