KEY WORD :@architecture / general terms

Lit. roof segments flowing down on four sides, also called shichuu yane l shihounagare l. A hipped or pyramidal roof, as for example, the top roof of a pagoda. When four or more planes converge, the peak is concealed by a box-like cover *roban I, topped by a precious jewel *houju or, in the case of a pagoda, a finial *sourin . Since the structural principles are the same, roofs over hexagonal or octagonal buildings *rokkaku endou Zp~; *hakkaku endou p~, are also classified as hougyou yane. They differ only in the number of roof planes. There are numerous Buddhist halls dating from the Heian period and later that have pyramidal roofs. Examples: Kakurinji Taishidou ߗюq (1112) in Hyougo prefecture, Kaijuusenji Monjudou CZRꓰ (13c) in Kyoto, Juurin-in Hondou \։@{ (early 14c) in Nara.@
