Himorogi in Japan are most commonly seen at construction sites, where they stand for a while before actual work begins. The zigzag-shaped paper streamer hanging from the boundary ropes are called shide (紙垂).

Shōō (正応), also spelled as Shō-ō, was a Japanese era name (年号,, nengō,, lit. "year name") after Kōan and before Einin from April 1288 through August 1293.[1] The reigning emperor was Fushimi-tennō (伏見天皇).[2]
