|KEY WORD : architecture / general terms|
name for a thickly plastered area projecting from the wall below the eaves of
a building. Used on storehouses *dozou
土蔵 and vernacular houses *minka
民家, particularly those with a box ridge *hakomune
箱棟, to increase fire resistance. A long narrow timber called hachimakinuki
鉢巻貫 is attached to the outer face of the eaves beams, forming a base to apply
several layers of plaster *shikkui
漆喰. Designs are sometimes carved out of the hachimaki (see *kurigata
繰形). The incline of the hachimaki in relation to the vertical is called
hachimaki koubai 鉢巻勾配.
