Also written “´ŒË, “¹K, or “¹ŒÃ, “°ŒÉAor “¹âÄ. A storage space for utensils used for the tea ceremony. The earliest type was probably a portable, free-standing, box-like object placed on the floor. Later it was hung on the wall, and finally, it became a built-in cupboard. This type of cupboard was particularly convenient for an elderly tea master's simple tea ceremony because he could handle the implements while seated. A douko is usually made by cutting out the wall on the kitchen side of the host's mat. The size of a douko varies, from 50cm-90cm wide, 45cm-60cm high, with a depth of 30cm-45cm. Generally, a small opaque sliding door of the unframed type *taikobariusuma ‘¾ŒÛ’£‰¦, is provided on the side of tea ceremony room. The bottom of the douko has a slatted floor, sunokonagashi âŎq—¬‚µ, and includes a shelf. A man named, doukou “¹K first made a cupboard for the storage of tea ceremony implements. Doukou's cupboard is 72cm high 66cm wide with cedar doors set on double tracks. It also has one board shelf and a nail to hang a ladle for water. METSUGO –ÅŒã in *NANBOUROKU “ì•û˜^, is a volume that contains exceedingly detailed writing on this subject.
