Tofu board

Ninnaji Temple, Kyoto sightseeing
This is a corner of veranda in a building of a temple. The old and traditional wooden house have the veranda, called engawa, around the house.

A square board is set at the very corner of the veranda. The board is called tofu-board because tofu is usually cut in a square. By the way, tofu means bean curd, very healthy food, and is a popular ingredient of miso soup.
