Chokugaku-mon Gate, Zojoji Temple, Shiba
The interior of the Chokugakumon Gate of Yushoin Mausoleum. Between the main and front pillars, the very ornate gate is decorated with carvings of Chinese phoenix inlaid with gold. It is built in the 'Kirizuma' (gabled roof) style with 'Karahafu' (undulating barge-board) in front and back, and a copper roof. Many copper lanterns were installed along the see-through fence on both sides of the gate. One of these lanterns is visible on the right-hand side of this photograph. The complex decoration of the gate is underlined by the use of green, yellow, pink, red and blue paint, applied by hand.
