A Traditional Roof Line

This roof line is in stark contrast to the one I posted yesterday. This one is very traditional, with the slightly curved eaves that extend a good distance. The roof is the main feature of a building and can feature all kinds of decoration from the top of the apex to the end of the eaves. Even under the eaves can be decorated. The round ends to the ridges on the roof are also all decorated, and are different from one roof to the next.

I personally found the Japanese buildings fascinating. They are so much more interesting to look at than 99% of our modern day clean cut buildings,and to a textile worker, they are full of inspiration.
