- The place of raised 2tatamis is "Jodan" for a noble people. This is a tea room so that you can find a small square for a kettle on the tatami, left side of the image.
- North-west view of Zangetsu-tei.
- Approach is called "Roji" where is designed as interior rather than exterior. The continuity of space from interior to exterior is the most important Japanese concept of space. The manners of tea ceremony is also continue from inside to outside.
- The space of the Roji has the feeling of tension and intimateness which are same feelings of inside. There are no differences between inside and outside in Japanese architecture.
