1@The gable pediment or the gable side a building with a gable roof *kirizuma yane ØÈ‰®ª; also the gable in a hip-and-gable roof *irimoya yane “ü•ê‰®‰®ª. The gable and gable end of a structure is normally at right angle to the main ridge *munagi “–Ø. The gable pediment itself is triangular in shape. Depending on the pitch of the front and back, the gable may be narrow in a steep roof and broad in one with a low, gentle incline. Gables can be attached on the slope of a roof parallel to the ridge. A long, curved sweeping front gable and short curved rear gable is characteristic of shrine buildings in the *nagare-zukuri —¬‘¢ style. Some times the depth of curve on the front roof is greater than that on the rear roof. Example: Ida Jinja Honden ’–“c_ŽÐ–{“a (1527), Mie prefecture. An example is at Kibitsu Jinja Honden Haiden ‹g”õ’Ð_ŽÐ–{“a”q“a (1425), Okayama prefecture.

2@The sides, ends or edges of a structural element. One example is the side of a storage box *tobukuro ŒË‘Ü, for storing the rain shutters *amado ‰JŒË. The side of a building is called tsumagawa È‘¤ and the end walls are called tsumakabe È•Ç.
