KEY WORD :@architecture / general terms
@
A built-up ridge compound or rows of patterned tiles *munakomigawara . Such high ridges did not appear until the end of the 16c but became a central characteristic of Edo period building. The rows of decorative tiles may vary from one to many, each with a different pattern. The use of munakomigawara is not confined to the main ridge, kumimune but is also applied to the descending ridges *kudarimune ~ and the offspring ridges *chigomune t. Various examples can be seen on temple and shrine buildings throughout the country. It is possible to see only one row of interlocking patterns *wachigaigawara ֈኢ, two examples on the gate at Houyuuji An'youin Omotemon @{@\, Nara and a more complex interlocking arrangement at Miidera Ryouganji Omotemon O䎛莛\, Shiga prefecture. However, interlocking patterns are more commonly used together with the chrysanthmum pattern *kikugawara e, for example, at Kibitsu Jinja Emaden gÐ_ЊGna, Okayama prefecture or at Houryuuji Nishimon .
