A hip-and-gable roof construction, or a building with this roof construction. A gable type roof has a ridge and gable pediments on the upper part and a hipped roof on the four sides on the lower part. This roof style was introduced from China at the same time as Buddhism in the mid 6c. In Japanese temple buildings the gable part of the roof usually covers the central core *moya •ê‰®, while the hipped part covers the surrounding aisle *hisashi ›ù. This style of roof is used on many types of traditional buildings including castles and folk dwellings. On folk-dwellings, it is often called moya-zukuri •ê‰®‘¢. Its popularity increased during the Kamakura period (1185-1333) and continued to be used more and more often for important buildings in the following centuries. Examples; Houryuuji *Daikoudou –@—²Ž›‘åu“°, tile roof (990) in Nara; Toyomitsu Jinja –L–ž_ŽÐ, four-legged gate *Shikyakumon Žl‹r–å, finely layered shingles and cypress bark roof (1323) in Shiga prefecture.
