Look up KARAMON Gate of Nijo Castle vol.2

November 21, 2017


This time I would like to talk about KARAMON gate of Nijo castle for more details.


I love watching ”gates", and for me the gate is not just to pass through.

I want my readers to take a time to carefully observe and you will be surprised by the magnificence of its carvings.

Carvings of cranes which are as if taking off to the sky at any moment. 
Tigers and dragons with ferocious but somehow humorous looks.
Butterflies enjoying honey on flowers with their wings spread or folded.
Beautiful blue butterflies look very happy flying over the bed of peony flowers.


This way, KARAMON gate is just like an animal paradise。

Everytime I see the gate, I get amazed by the eyes of sculptors to capture such a wonderful nature.

KARAMON is located within the walking distance from YUMEYAKATA OIKE Bettei.
