Also written Wi and Wh. A method of stone paving in the *roji In or tea garden in which a large rectangular stone path is made by paving together numerous smaller stones. Nobedan may use cut-stone paving *kiri-ishijiki ؐΕ~, mixed-stone paving *yose-ishijiki Ε~, round- stone paving *tama-ishijiki ʐΕ~, or a combination of these types. The characteristics of successful nobedan are given in the IKEIOSHOU SANBYAKKAJOU }kaOSӏ : Make long stepping stones narrow, short stepping stones wide. There are many styles. In some places they are from 72-75cm, and the narrower ones are 51- 60 cm. The joints between the different types of stones create interesting shadows, the beauty of which is a key feature of nobedan. The patterns of these joints are called *ararekoboshi ŗ낵 or *ararekuzushi ŕ. The length of the nobedan should allow the tea gathering guests, usually five in number, to stand together when they are greeted by the host. Thus, the nobedan is often near the middle gate *chuumon , although it may also be positioned elsewhere.
