An eight-legged gate *hakkyakumon ”ª‹r–å ( 1653), located at Rinnouji Taiyuuin Reibyou —Ö‰¤Ž›‘å—Q‰@—ì•_ in Tochigi prefecture. The entrance is through the center bay. Both end bays, back and front, have a fence called *kongousaku ‹à|ò made of vertically-set laths with the top of each lath carved to resemble an Esoteric Buddhist ritual implement. The pillars *hashira ’Œ are round, fluted, gomagara jakuri ŒÓ–ƒŠk™r, have entasis and are erected on base stones *soseki ‘bÎ. Two-stepped bracket complexes *futatesakigumi “ñŽèæ‘g are placed not only atop the pillars but in the interstices *nakazonae ’†”õ. Closely-packed bracket complexes like these are called *tsumegumi ‹l‘g and are characteristic of the Zen style *zenshuuyou ‘T@—l. Rainbow beams *kouryou “ø—À, and bottle struts *taiheizuka ‘å•r‘©, are used in the gable pediments. The roof is gabled *kirizuma yane ØÈ‰®ª, and covered with copper sheeting simulating tile. The ceiling is finely latticed and coffered *kogumi goutenjou ¬‘gŠi“Vˆä. All the nosings *kibana –Ø•@, and transoms *ranma —“ŠÔ, are beautifully carved. Metal ornamentation is widely used and the gate is lacquered.
