Also called honsumigawara {; sumi tomoegawara b. A half-round, corner, eave-end, pendant tile; also called a half-round, corner, eave-end, hip tile. A type of tile used at the corner eave-ends of a hipped roof *yosemune yane 񓏉 or hip-and-gable roof *irimoya yane ꉮ. The half-round pendant tile nokisaki marugawara ۊ also called sumidomoe is placed at the front end of the corner. This name is derived from the wide use of the comma pattern *tomoemon b that decorated the pendant *gatou from the end of the 12c onward. Until the end of the 10c, there was no hidden roof structure noyane kouzou 쉮\, so that it was easy to employ ordinary *nokimarugawara ۊ at the corner eave-ends. After the hidden roof came into use, the corner curved sharply upward necessitating a special corner eave-end tile. However, due to the variation in the degree of curvature, the curvature on the upper part of the barrel *dou and the underside of the tile also varied.
