KEY WORD :@architecture / tea houses
@
An alcove room *tokonoma ̊, ususally 91 to 95 cm square, equal to the size of the half mat, hanjou , used in a 4 1/2 mat *yojouhan l, tea ceremony room *chashitsu . It is almost always adjacent to the host's mat *temaedatami _O. Between the alcove post *tokobashira , and the wall post nearest the host's mat, a partial wall is constructed reaching just below the halfway point between floor and ceiling. This wall may be solid or contain a *shitajimado n, a window filled with bamboo laths and twisted vine. Most masudoko have a wooden floor that is level with the matting *tatami , and called *fumikomidoko (step-in-style alcove). Some masudoko have a tatami mat *tatamidoko , and others have a wooden base higher than the tatami, *itadoko . The term masudoko is derived from the square shape of the alcove which resembles a square measuring box called *masu l. Example: Daitokuji Jukouin Masudoko-no-seki 哿ڌ@e, Kyoto.
