Ekken-no-ma


As a tangible symbol of the Kaga dynasty, Ekken-no-ma was utilized for formal meetings. The chamber consists of two parts, the upper chamber and the lower chamber. It is divided by the ranma (a wooden panel with openwork carving used as a decorative transom above paper sliding doors). The ceilings have two different styles, gotenjou (coffered ceiling) and oriage tenjou(coved ceiling.) The material is lacquered. The walls that are attached with paper and cloth are complemented by powdered gold foil. On the wooden skirting of the paper sliding doors are birds and flowers painted gorgeously. Among the few existing shoin-style buildings inhabited by feudal lords in Japan, Seisonkaku is a particularly unique villa for wives.
