Koyasan Daimon, Koya-cho

3.9
Marking the western entrance to the ancient Shingen temple complex, you'll see the vermilion gate of Koyasan Daimon as it rises starkly to 25 m (82 ft) high. Displaying ornate woodwork, the gate is guarded by two fearsome-looking but benevolent guardian dieties, Lord Un and Ah. You'll see what the pilgrims of the olden days saw, as they ended their travels and arrived here, the headquarters of the Shingen Buddhist sect.

  • This is the gateway to the village of Koyasan. It's huge, it's pretty well taken care of even though you can see the passage of time in it. It is seen from the road before entering the main street that crosses Koyasan.

  • Because it is on the west side of Koyasan, it is beautiful when the west day of the evening became low. The view from the place where it went up a little hill to the help jizo side was good.
