Pressed Cypress Bark Roof

While some roofs in Goten are tiled with crested tiles around the eaves (as mentioned in this post), other roofs are made of pressed cypress bark. This type of roof is called “hiwadabuki” (桧皮葺) in Japanese. The photo below is of the roof at one of the lowest and easiest to see points, you can find it in the walkway between Remeiden and Kuro-shoin.Pressed Cypress Bark Roof
