KAWARAis the Japanese roof tile which have protected temples, houses for 1400years old, (from Heian period). It was not allowed to use KAWARA at Japanese ordinary people, it was only used at formal architecture like shrines, temples, noble houses and "SAMURAI"houses until Edo period(about 400 years ago).
