Figures On The Other Side Of The Gate Of Daitokuin Mausoleum

Figures on the other side of gate

Two figures were seen on the other side of the gate

Shot at Shiba Park in Shiba, Tokyo.

An old massive gate stood on the edge of Shiba Park. It is the Gate of Daitokuin Mausoleum. The gate is open to the public and anyone can go through. Once, this site was a mausoleum for Tokugawa Hidetada, the second Shogun of Tokugawa shogunate. So it was not an area open to the public at that time. As time went by, the site became a park and a site of a hotel. Anyone who wants to go through can enter into the site.

A stairway stretched on the other side of the gate. And I found two figures at the top of the staircase. They were progressing more deeply into the site. Shortly after, they would arrive at the entrance of a hotel, The Prince Park Tower Tokyo. The site of the Mausoleum became part of the site of the modern hotel.
