“What a surprise”

Nishihonganji Karamon Gate
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

The gate is stunning, an unexpected surprise. The elaborate carvings and the wonderful colors make it magical. The only other place that we visited that had similar carvings is at the Nijo-jo Castle.

This is a lovely and ornate gate, located within the park surrounding Nijo castle.
It provides some lovely photo-ops.

This is the most beautiful entry we have seen ice China or Japan. Brightly colored elaborate carvings that are fit for a Shogun.

We say this as part of our tour of Kyoto.

The gate was well maintained and rather imposing. I recommend coming here
