The Great Gate Daimon
This is Dai-mon (gate) also known as the Great Shiba Gate.
If you were to take the main street to Zojo-ji, this is the first gate or mon you would see.
It is really impressive. Wiki states it's made of concrete now but when I felt it, it felt like wood. Looks like wood too.
I know in other countries landmarks like this would be fenced off or moved. But in Japan, it's just part of the scenery. A very nice part.
