A simple style of main shrine building, *honden –{“a, with gable roof, *kirizumayane ØÈ‰®ª, and a single broad entrance at the center of the gable end. It is 2 ~ 2 bays(3.64) and is set on a podium. It does not have the typical veranda or railings surrounding it. It is thought by some scholars that the absence of a veranda derives from the use, originally, of a earthen floor which can still be seen in the Hinokuma Kunikakasu Jinguu “ú‘O‘Œœ_‹{ (rebuilt in 1925). This style of shrine seems to have the same lineage as the Sumiyoshi Taisha Z‹g‘åŽÐ, and the *taisha-zukuri ‘åŽÐ‘¢ shrines. The roof has no curve and the bargeboards, *hafu ”j•—, are straight. The interior is divided into two parts, an inner chamber, *naijin “àw, to the rear and an outer chamber, *gejin ŠOw, in the front. These are separated by walls on either side of a central door occupying slightly more than one third of the width of the building. The roof of the shrine is covered with many layers of cypress bark shingles. There is a high, superimposed, exterior ridge, which is ornamental rather than structural. Each end is finished with an ogre type ridge-end tile, *onigawara ‹SŠ¢, over which are a set of forked finials, *okichigi ’uç–Ø, with three wind holes, kazaana •—ŒŠ, cut in each. The upper ends are cut vertically and the lower ends are straight cut. The wind holes and ends of the forked finials are protected with decorative metal covers. There are three billets, *katsuogi Š–Ø, set one in the middle and one at each end behind the chigi. The bargeboards also have metal, ornament at pendants, *gegyo Œœ‹›, at their peaks and at each end. In front of the shrine itself is a prodigous step canopy, *kouhai Œü”q. The shrine's plan is very similar to the original Sumiyoshi style, *sumiyoshi-zukuri Z‹g‘¢.
Example: Ootori Jinja Honden ‘å’¹_ŽÐ–{“a, in Sakai ä City, Osaka; Hinokuma Kunikakasu Jinguu “ú‘O‘Œœ_‹{, (1662; burned in 1905 and rebuilt in 1909) in Wakayama ˜a‰ÌŽR city, Wakayama prefecture.
