Oki-yane (Saya-kumi)
It literally means a placed roof structure.

For fire prevention, on top of the thick plastering material painted on the roof of the earthen-wall storehouse, gassho-kumi structure is placed, which is insulated from the small roof set of the understructure. Okiyane roof, or gassho-kumi structure is configured to be fixed on top of the Neko-ishi or cat stone, produced in plastering. The engineering technology is traditionally employed in the device that does not increase the temperature of the soil chamber of storehouse, by insulating effect through the space in between the ceiling and roof. It is also called Saya-kumi style structure.

Gassho-gumi style structure is characterized as the triangle frame of roof whose main structural beam that supports the roof, called principal rafter. Gassho means joining one's hands in prayer and the shape of the structure resembles that of joining one's hands in prayer.

The family found a kimono merchant (draper), doing business as Nono-ya. The residence of the Nakai family is located at the back of the residence of the Nakamura family and across the Jyounomonsuji street of the residence of the Kiguchi family.

The roof of the Sangawara tile-roofing is low, and there is no tsushi-nikai, but the storefront specially looks old-fashioned along the street. The appearance of the townhouse is as used to be, after finishing the retrofitting works back to the former original condition.
