1. An ancient style of Shinto shrine architecture used especially for the main sanctuary *honden –{“a. It is either a small, rectangular, 3 X 2 bay building made of stripped, untreated wood with one entrance on the long side *hirairi •½“ü, or if a one bay square structure, an entrance on the side at a right angle to the gable ends. It is raised several steps above ground level and is surrounded by a railed veranda. The roof is a simple gable type *kirizuma yane ØÈ‰®ª, covered with thatch, board, board and batten, and now usually overlaid with copper sheeting, cypress bark or Japanese cedar shingles. The slope of the roof may be 45Kor less. Traditionally, pillars were sunk directly into the ground *hottatebashira Œ@—§’Œ: where base stones are used, they are buried deeply underground so that the pillars appear to be of the ancient sunken type. The ridge pole *munagi “–Ø, receives full support from free-standing pillars, called *munamochibashira “Ž’Œ or futabashira “ñ’Œ on the gable ends. The bargeboards *hafu ”j•—, extend beyond the ridge line to form forked finials *chigi ç–Ø. In most cases today, the chigi are made of separate pieces, okichigi ’uç–Ø, and are often placed to appear as if they are extensions of the bargeboards. Eight slender members *muchikake •ÚŠ|, four on either side, extend just below the peak of the bargeboard. A long peaked timber *kou-ita b” or irakaooi áO•¢, is laid on top of the roof to form a ridge-like plate to carry the billets *katsuogi Œ˜‹›–Ø. Ridge protecting timbers *aori-ita á“D”Â, are inserted under this long timber and are secured by pegs *hinuki ”òŠÑ, extending through the ridge-protecting boards into the struts that secure the ridge. The ridge and billets are supported by struts called *hizuka ”ó‘© which are placed between the ridgepole and the ridge-like plate. The shinmei style is most widely seen in Mie prefecture, as exemplified by Ise Daijinguu ˆÉ¨‘å_‹{, main sanctuaries, also called *shouden ³“a. Other good examples are found at Nishina Shinmeiguu Honden m‰È_–¾‹{–{“a (1636), in Nagano prefecture and Atsuta Jinguu Shouden ”M“c_‹{³“a in Aichi prefecture.
