The general term for a hall where food offerings are prepared. The actual name used to designate the building may differ depending on the shrine involved; some names include gokusho, shinkusho, kashiwadono, moridono, mikeden, and imibiya, and the composition and construction of the buildings may also differ. At present, most are small structures consisting of the minimal size and facilities necessary for preparing food offerings. In many cases, buildings are not constructed independently but are connected to the haiden so as to facilitate the performance of rites.
