The gate called SANGEDATSU MON in Zojo-Ji was painted in red

A big old wooden gate stands at the main entrance of Zojo-Ji. This gate is called 'SANGEDATSU MON'. Fortunately, it was not destroyed by the US air raids during WWII. The gate has been figuring prominently in modern Tokyo.

The air raid resulted in massive destruction of not only the factories and houses but also historical architectures. The firebomb could put the wooden Japanese buildings on fire like taking candy from a baby.

When I stood under the gate built in 1622, I saw two figures passing through it.
