KEY WORD :@architecture / roofing tiles
@
Roofing material made of fired clay tiles, first introduced with the advent of Buddhism from the Paekche Kingdom (Jp:*Kudara S) in Korea in the 6c. At first tile roofing was used only on temple and government buildings. From the 14c onward, the use of tile roofing extended to some styles of shrine buildings, palaces and castles. In the Edo period, especially in Edo (Tokyo), the advantage of tiles compared to other highly flammable types of roofing, like thatch *kayabuki , cypress bark *hiwadabuki O畘 or *kokerabuki `, was fully recognized. Furthermore, tile roofing could be expected to last at least 75 years with only minor repairs, in contrast to other forms of roofing material that needed replacement after 20 or 30 years. For other types of roofing material: warabuki m; *itabuki •; dougawarabuki .
