The Great Gate Daimon

Dai-mon

This is Dai-mon (gate) also known as the Great Shiba Gate.

Zojo-ji 41

If you were to take the main street to Zojo-ji, this is the first gate or mon you would see.

Zojo-ji 40

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.

Zojo-ji 39

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.
