This study is based mainly on the ancient documents of Imperial Household Shinto, and Chinese Classics such as Li-Chi. The most significant ritual for the enthronement of the emperor is Dai-Jo Sai. And the main stage of this event, Daijo Kyu, is a temporary sacred place set in a kind of time and space that is different from that of the ordinary world. Each of the two central pavilions placed in the sacred place is Yuki (or Suki) Shoden. The Shoden is formed of the two rooms named Shitsu and Do. These architectural structures are looked on as proper to Japan. This paper is a study about the form and the function of these two rooms as compared with the systems of ancestral temples in ancient China. In conclusion, it may be said that we can find some Chinese influences on the structures of the Shoden.
