KEY WORD :@architecture / general terms
@
A framework used especially in temples and shrines to sustain the roof. It is composed of double rainbow beams *kouryou separated by frog-leg struts *kaerumata 富. The upper rainbow beam is about half the length of the lower one. Frog-leg struts carrying bearing blocks are placed about one fourth of the way in from each end of the lower rainbow beam to support the upper one. A bearing block with a 3-on-1 bracket arm is placed on each end of the upper rainbow beam to carry purlins. Another frog-leg strut is placed at the center of the upper rainbow beam to carry the 3-on-1 bracket complexes that support the ridge *mune . The lower rainbow beam is the larger of the two and is normally a big, heavy beam. To distinguish between the upper and lower rainbow beams, the lower one is called daikouryou , or more rarely ookouryou. Occasionally, daikouryou simply refers to a very large rainbow beam, but the upper smaller beam is never called shoukouryou .
