This study will attempt to clarify the development and changes of types of plans on the resultant reconstruction. From these, it is possible to deduce the reasons for changes and trace the development of the plans. Most of the memorial cloisters built in the late modern age, from Bunka 4  to Kaei 7 , show the same development of sanctuaries and verandas as those of the mid-modern age (Genroku 6 ~Kansei 9 ). For example, the floors of veranda on three sides of some buildings were changed from wooden boards to tatami mats, transforming the function of veranda to that of saya no ma. The employment of 1.5 ken veranda on the left and right sides of the building is also seen. In other cases, the front of the innermost sanctuary of some memorial cloisters were remodeled for placement of the carved statue of the cloister founder. Also in this period, some memorial cloisters had the rear of the sanctuary expanded out.
