|KEY WORD : architecture / general terms|
|Also called da-itabuki 駄板葺. A shingled roof which has bamboo battens and or stones to hold the shingles in place. By the end of the 16c many shops along major roads in Japan had shingled roofs. The name is derived from shops with shingled roofs in Odawara, which were actually copied from shops with shingled roofs in Kyoto.|
