Red Pillars In Zojo-Ji

Worshipers walking under red gate

The gate was painted in red

Shot at Zojo-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Shiba, Tokyo.

An big old wooden gate stood at the main entrance of the temple. It was called 'SANGEDATSU MON'. Fortunately, it was not destroyed by the US air raids during the WWII. The air raid resulted in massive destruction of not only the factories and houses but also historical architectures. The fire bomb 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.
