Roof Tile

This is a tile used on the roof of Kaichi Primary School in Matsumoto City, Nagano. Width and hight of it exceed one meter. I saw it when I visited the old wooden school in mid-July and was impressed with its size and complex design. Nowadays, no primary school has luxury of being decorated with such elaborate roof tiles. It may show the intense zeal for education in earlier days.
