Nio Looking Down

Statue of Nio

The statue of Nio was looking down with a severe expression

Shot at Shiba Park in Shiba, Tokyo.

On the edge of Shiba Park, a wooden magnificent gate stands. It is a former main gate of Taitoku-In Mausoleum for Tokugawa Hidetada, the second Shogun of Tokugawa shogunate. Yet the gate is the only remnant of the mausoleum. Most of the architectures were destroyed by the aerial bombing during WWII. And the tomb of Tokugawa Hidetada was also moved to Zojo-Ji, which was located in the next to the park. So no religious architectures were on the other side of this gate now. If you go through this gate, you find the hotel.

Although the owner vanished already, the statue of Nio keeps guarding the site. He has a rough look and looks down those who are about to pass though the gate.
