Architectural style Sumiyoshi-zukuri precedes the arrival of Buddhism in Japan and is free from the influence of continental Asia. The best example is the Sumiyoshi Taisha temple. The buildings are painted in red. The roofs are simple and made of thatched roofs. Other features of sumiyoshi zukuri are okichigi - forked tops on the roof and five square billets (katsuogi) placed horizontally along the roof. The building is surrounded by a wooden fence.
