A general term for a tile roof, especially one which is composed of relatively flat, broad, concave tiles *hiragawara and semi-cylindrical convex tiles *marugawara ۊ. The former are laid first and the latter act as protective covers for the seams or joints where the hiragawara meet. Setting the tiles begins at the eave edge. The eave end tiles *nokihiragawara and *nokimarugawara ۊ have decorative pendants attached which deflect the rain as it runs off the roof. These are the basic tiles. Many additional tiles with various shapes are needed, for example, over the ridge and ridge ends, along gable edges, at corners etc.
