|KEY WORD :@architecture / roofing tiles|
| 1@The second layer of tiles that is curved and set at a same angle to the
first layer of tiles, dainoshi äàl, which are laid over the ridge
beam *munagi Ø. On
top of the hada noshigawara are the shorter slightly curved tiles
called warinoshi àl, which are stacked at an angle which closely
follows the angle of the hada noshigawara. The first warinoshi
tile is called itonoshi
àl. There appears to be no hard and fast
rule for the number of warinoshi ; this depends on the curvature
of the main ridge munagi , and the size of the building. The uppermost
layer of tiles is called amenoshi Jàl and the ridge cover tiles are
Ô¢ or *munegawara
2@A thick plank or tiles used to keep the top side of the short, thick, outward sloping eave-like boards securely in place on a cypress bark roof. When tiles are used for this purpose, they are also called hada noshigawara; when planks are used, they are called *aori-ita áDÂ.
