Shurishiki (The Palace Repairs Office) (修理職)
Official duties and history
The main duty was the repair and construction of Daidairi (the Greater Imperial Palace).
Since clerical work of Moku-ryo (Bureau of Carpentry) in charge of construction and architecture under the Ritsuryo system (ancient East Asian system of centralized governance in Japan: esp. 7th-10th century) was complicated, work of Zogushiki (Office of Works) which was merged once was delinked, and Shurishiki was newly established as Ryoge no kan in 818 in the period of Emperor Saga. In 826, Shurishiki was abolished by a merger with Moku-ryo. In 890, Shurishiki was revived and established.
