Daimyo Fence 大名竹垣
A completed Daimyo fence set above a stone knee wall. An additional horizontal bamboo of smaller diameter is added to help accentuate the broom effect. Additional half-culms are added to the top of the fence. Fasteners are hidden with decorative black palm rope. You can see how these knots are tied in this video on Simple Japanese knots.
