Top Definition
A translucent screen consisting of a wooden frame covered in rice paper, used as a sliding door or partition in a Japanese house.
Shoji screens are Japanese designed Asian panel screens, popular worldwide for their practical advantages. Shoji screens are different from Chinese and other oriental screens in that the panels are rice paper, not wood, rattan, or bamboo. Rice paper is lighter than wood, but, as important, lets light pass through. Paper provides privacy, like any oriental screen, but also diffuses light throughout any room.

A type of tri-folded wooden screen with wooden dividers that are either diagonal, horizontal or both that is backed with rice paper or a thin white fabric. Originated in Japan it has seen many other styles as it has become westernized.
I bought a really cute shoji screen from IKEA, I'm going to use it to cover the air conditioner unit in my apartment.
