Tsumairi style: the entrance is on the gabled side

Tsumairi or Tsumairi-zukuri (妻入・妻入造?) is a Japanese traditional architectural structure where the building has its main entrance on one or both of the gabled sides ( tsuma?). The shinmei-zukuri, nagare-zukuri, hachiman-zukuri, and hie-zukuri Shinto architectural styles all belong to this type.[1]
