Yohmeimon Gate

Yomeimon gate in Nikko
Shot at Nikko Tosho-Gu, a Shinto shrine in Nikko, Tochigi tetsuOzawa

The flamboyant gate was seen

This shrine is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate. The gate in the background is Yohmeimon gate. It is also called 'Higurashi-Mon' (until dark gate) because people who look at this gate will not get bored looking all night and all day. I wonder if people call the gate with such name even it is built currently. There are many kinds of leisure for killing time. So most of them might be susceptible to boredom.

The gate is part of the 'Shrines and Temples of Nikkō', a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
