This study intends to clarify the development and change of types of plans, during the mid-modern age (Genroku 6 ~Kansei 9 ), according to reconstruction plans. From these, it is possible to dedicate the reason for changes and trace the development of the plans. In the mid-modern age, the plans of most memorial cloisters have similar development patterns to those of the early modern age (Keichô 1 ~Enpô 9 ). For instance, part of veranda, on three side of the building, was renovated and changed to saya no ma. The employment of 1.5 ken veranda also appeared on the left, right and front side of the building. Moreover, at some memorial cloisters, in order to have place for the carved statue of the cloister founder, the front of the sanctuary was reformed.
