Also houtateguchi. An entrance to a tea ceremony room *chashitsu ’ƒŽº with paving stones in front. The door frame is formed by a strong structural pillar on one side and on the opposite side a small post called *houdate •û—§, which is sometimes made of bamboo. A lintel is placed on the top which is joined to the pillar and the small post. The inside dimonsions of the entrance are about 153cm high and 40cm wide. The lintel is frequently extended, for decorative or structural purposes. This type of entrance is often used as a *sadouguchi ’ƒ“¹Œû, from which the tea master or host enters and exits the tea room. Example: En'an ‰ˆÁ, Kyoto.@
