KEY WORD :@architecture / buildings & structures
@
A small, 2~21/2 bay private Buddhist hall (1685?) at Katsura Rikyuu Œj—£‹{, Kyoto. The hall has a tiled roof *hongawarabuki –{Š¢•˜, that is in the pyramidal style *hougyou yane •óŒ`‰®ª, but is curved convexly *mukuriyane ‹N‰®ª. The overall style of the building is totally unrelated to the shoin style *shoin-zukuri ‘‰@‘¢, or to the main buildings or the tea ceremony houses *chashitsu ’ƒŽº. The roof of the Onrindou is crowned, like some temple buildings, with a box-like cover *roban ˜I”Õ, placed over the apex of the pyramidal roof surmounted by an inverted bowl-like fixture with an undecorated, onion-jewel form *houju •óŽì, added. The step-canopy *kouhai Œü”q, terminates in an elaborate undulating bargeboard *karahafu “‚”j•—. The entrance is directly above the steps. The gable is supported by two chamfered posts, painted red, with boat-shaped bracket arms *funahijiki M•I–Ø, set on top of the posts. At the entrance are Chinese style paneled doors, opening outward from the center. The interior has a plank floor. Windows *katoumado ‰Î“”‘‹, with ogee-type scrolled tops and slanted sides that broaden at the base, are called yaburegata ”jŒ`. A Buddhist altar *butsudan •§’d, is at the back of the hall and behind it are four sliding screens *shouji áŽq, with a rough, yellowish green linen cloth covering them. The main images enshrined here are painted images of *Youryuu Kannon —g–öŠÏ‰¹. The Onrindou can be thought of as a founders hall, Kaisandou ŠJŽR“°, because it has memorial tablets and painted images of all the princes connected with the Katsura Rikyuu. There is also a letter from Hosokawa Yuusai ×ì—HÖ (1534-1610) preserved in the Onrindou. He was the teacher of the first Prince, Toshihito ’qm (1579-1629), to stay at Katsura. The building's name derives from the calligraphy of the retired Emperor Gomizunoo Œã…”ö (1611-29) who wrote "Onrin". This is framed and kept in the building.
