Take a look at this build, the LDD file is included for download and you can look at it for some inspiration.

If you stay tooned I'll add the guide to this group as soon as it is done. This is, of course, not the only technique out there but it is a fun one.

I'm afraid that the person who made this original comment is now inactive since they haven't posted anything here in over a year, but just in case someone else is curious, I have some roof building methods listed here:

There are three other major methods that I've seen.
One is the brick on brick approach which approximates the shape of a bamboo roof my gradually changing the way that the bricks are stacked. Here is an example

Another that I've seen, and which is the basis which my method expands upon, is to lay angled platforms down in such a way as to reproduce the angles involved in such a roof. Here is an example of that method.

The last is to just use prefab angled roof parts. Some builds use a combination of methods as seen here:

Stay tuned to my page since I'll be making another Japanese themed creation soon (relatively) that will use an expanded method of my roofing technique.
