As announced before, a renovation of Kinkakuji temple, or the golden pavilion, started on September 1. The video was shot 5 days later. Actually, the temple is not under construction. It is nearly covered with scaffolding.

The temple covered with gold is called Sahriden.

The renovation is not a complete overhaul like the one in 1987. This time, the roofs of it will be replaced. As you see, the roofs of the 2nd and 3rd floor are not plated gold. (The 1st floor has no roof.)

The temple tells us that the renovation is to be end in December.

These photo show the main hall of Kiyomizu-dera temple under renovation. It also has scaffolding with net. I suppose Shariden of Kinkakuji will be covered with the same kind of net.

 “Kokera-buki ” method. 杮葺とは?

Introduction はじめに

The roofs of Kinkakuji are built in “Kokera-buki ” method. “Kokera-buki” means “roof constructed with pieces of wood.” This is one of 2 popular method to make roofs of shrines and temples.

In this method, we use thin plate of Japanese cedar, Hinoki cypress usually.

The roof of Kinkakuji is made of Sawara wood.

How to make Kokera-buki roof 杮葺屋根の作り方

  1. Cut log 12″ in heigt.
  2. The log looks like ◎. Peel off the outer edge because it doesn’t go with water.
  3. Cut it as pizza. It is divided into couples of kind of isosceles triangular prisms.
  4. Slice off the one of 2 side of the same length to make thin sheets (About 0.08″).
  5. Place these sheets on the roof board, overlapping the adjacent ones, and fix them with bamboo nails.

Before the renovation, the roof looked like this.

Take a look at theses photos. It is a model of the roof made of “Hiwada-buki” method. The difference between “Kokera-buki” and it is material. Tree bark or sheet of wood,

For example, the roofs of Kiyomizu-dera temple is made of Hiwadabuki.

Kokera-buki and Hiwada-buki 杮葺と檜皮葺

観音殿

I said Kokera-buki is one of 2 method previously. The other is Hiwada-buki. They resembles each other. Sheet of wood and bark of tree are easily curved. Thanks to this feature, carpenters make elegant line of roof. (Like Ginkakuji temple in the photo.)

The roofs of both method last about a couples of decades. Kokera-buki needs logging though Hiwadabuki doesn’t. (It needs only barking tree. Tree is still alive.) And it is important to reserve woods.

Let me show you an example. The pillars of the stage of Kiyomizu-dera temple are made of Keyaki tree. It doesn’t grow straight as cedar.  They are to be replaced about 400 years later. To prepare for the replacement, Kiyomizu-dera temple planted cedars in 2000.
