KEY WORD :@architecture / roofing tiles

Also sodegawara , *tonemarugawara ۊ, tonegawara . Lit. cylindrical sleeve tile. A sleeve tile used the rear of the hanging tile *kakegawara | that is laid on a barge course *keraba 屉H, drooping verge *minokou b of a Japanese shrine or temple building. One side of the tile is longer than the other to compensate for the difference between the curve of the roof and the curve of the barge course. The tile also closes the gap that would otherwise exist, if ordinary semi-cylindrical tiles *marugawara ۊ were used. It is not clear when the definitive shape for sleeve tiles evolved. Even at Himejijou PH (17c) in Hyougo prefecture, true sleeve tiles are not used. Instead one semi-cylindrical tile and a part of another *dakimarugawara ۊ are joined to bridge the gap created by the change in level between the first concave roof tile *tonehiragawara and the second concave tile *hiragawara . However, there is no doubt that sleeve tiles were in common use during the Edo period.
