The ogre-face tile *onigawara ‹SŠ¢, placed at the ends of offspring ridges *chigomune ’tŽq“, at the corners of hip-and gable roofs *irimoya yane “ü•ê‰®ª. The end of the longer, descending part of the the corner ridge *sumikudarimune ‹÷‰º“, is faced with another ogre tile called ni-no-oni “ñ‚Ì‹S. No reason has been discovered as to why the ends of the two corner ridges have an ogre tile, introduced at the late 7c to the early 8c. Not all so-called ogre tiles have faces.
