katō-mado

Katō-mado is the generic name for a window with a series of curves at the top. Many of the windows feature a pointed arch at the peak. The style first appeared in Zen style temple buildings in the late Kamakura period. The older ones have vertical jambs while the newer style is flared toward the base.
