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