Also jikukugi Ž²“B, kakemonokugi Š|•¨“B. A hook for hanging scrolls *kakemono Š|•¨ that is made of metal or bamboo and hammered into the upper part of the back wall, or the bottom edge of the ceiling molding of a tea ceremony alcove *tokonoma °‚ÌŠÔ. Metal jikukakekugi are bent twice to form a three-pronged, trident shape. If made of bamboo, the hook is hammered straight into the wall, or with a slight upward incline in a rustic style tea ceremony room. Bamboo nails are 0.63cm long and are nailed 2.8cm below the ceiling molding, projecting from the wall. Around the late 16c - early 17c, in *shoin ‘‰@ style tea rooms one, three, four or eight scrolls were hung and each had a hook. When three hooks, mitsukugi ŽO“B, were used, the right and left ones were made smaller and projected 3cm. When a set of three scrolls, sanpukutsui ŽO•‘Î, were hung, in a large shoin style room, a board 6-8mm thick, 12-30cm wide and 180cm long was nailed to the bottom edge of the ceiling molding and a groove was made so that the inserted zigzag shaped nails could be moved easily.
