KEY WORD :@architecture / roofing tiles
@
Also read munagawara. Lit. ridge tiles. A generic term for the tiles used to cover the apex of the roof. Traditionally, two types are common. On shrine and temple buildings, tiles called kadozan fusumagawara pVԊ are used, while tiles called hako kanmurigawara , meaning box-like, are employed on vernacular houses *minka . Kadozan indicates that the tiles have angled edges or squared-off edges in contrast to the rounded edges, maruzan fusumagawara ێVԊ, of the tiles that cover vernacular houses.
