The room at the front of Usasuka was called the Karahafu, and this was an important place where the king sat in front of the officials lined in rows in the Una for New Year’s ceremonies, and when letters were sent to the Chinese emperor. This was an impressively prestigious space surrounded by dragon décor and Karahafu style roof.
Destroyed by the fire in October 2019.
