After passing through the famous Red Gate, we entered the Hongo campus of the University of Tokyo. As soon as one enters the gate, which used to be the gate of the Maeda family's Kamiyashiki residence, one is immediately confronted with stone buildings. The Western-style buildings on the site all exude a stately atmosphere, contrasting sharply with the lightness of the Red Gate, which was built in Japanese architecture. The lightness of the red gate seems to complement the massiveness of the buildings.

The building in the photo is one of a group of stone buildings on the campus of the University of Tokyo, and is the building of the Historiographical Institute of the University of Tokyo. A series of arches at the front entrance are supported by Ionic columns. The warm sunlight was shining down on the building, casting clear shadows on the arches.
