Also written Œ@—§‚Ä, Œ@Œš‚Ä. A construction technique whereby the feet of posts, hashira-no-nemoto ’Œ‚̍ªŒ³, are embedded directly into the earth, rather than set upon foundation stones *soseki ‘bÎ, or ground sills *dodai “y‘ä, at ground level. It is the oldest system of securing the base of a timber-frame structure to the ground, originating in the primitive structures of prehistoric and proto-historic Japan. The technique was widely used in the ancient period for prestigious structures, and persisted in some forms of vernacular structure into the Edo period. Also it has survived as a traditional form of construction in shrine buildings at Ise Jinguu ˆÉ¨_‹{, Mie prefecture.
