    Goldfield Text by Christian The greatest portion of the class was dedicated to learning the proper layout and construction of the Yotsume gaki bamboo fence Yama san made a life sized template from sections of bamboo and post to illustrate the traditional proportions and arrangement of the fence Since there are many variations of the basic yotsume gaki we constructed a person may be tempted to get innovative in their design Yama san recommended following a diagram of a traditional fence simply because these designs have been tried and tested over many hundreds of years and the proportions have in a sense been perfected Usually the Japanese fence illustrations are measured in either metric or the old Japanese system of measurement called Shakkan ho For a close approximation to this old form of measurement find an engineering ruler tape which divides 1 foot into 10 parts rather than 12 This is not an exact conversion but it is very close and will suffice for the needs of the gardener The following is an approximate conversion table for the Shakkan ho system 1 bu 3 millimeters 1 8 inch 1 sun 3 centimeters 1 3 16 inch 1 shaku 30 3 centimeters 1 foot 1 ken 1 818 meters 6 feet 10 bu 1 sun 10 sun 1 shaku 6 shaku 1 ken standard tatami size 60 ken 1 cho If you want more information on Japanese measurements check out http www jp from hanna com japan profile measurements rc We built a standard section of yotsume gaki measuring approximately 2 ken long about 12 ft Round pressure treated posts were charred with a propane torch and then scrubbed to remove the soot leaving an attractive and functional surface serving as a pest deterrent The posts were sunk about 2 shaku
