Nakayama Torii.svg
日本語: 中山鳥居明神鳥居に似るが、貫が柱を貫通していないもの。名称の由来は岡山県の中山神社から。京都・北野天満宮の末社、伴氏社にちなんで伴氏の鳥居ともいう[1]。主に岡山県と三重県伊賀市に分布している[2]
English: Nakayama-torii, also called Tomo-uji no torii[1][3], is identical to a Myōjin-torii, but the tie beam (nuki) does not protrude from the pillars and the curve made by top lintel (kasagi) is more accentuated than usual[4].

  3. Tomo-uji (伴氏) may also have been pronounced as Ban-shi, but Negishi doesn't state the pronunciation, and Kitano-tenmangū calls it Tomo-uji.
