The facade of the Yomei Gate. A panel with calligraphy by Emperor Gosuio is seen in the centre, and the upper part of the gate is covered with dragon carvings, and the lower layer with lion carvings. Statues of auillary deities flank the walls. The colours of the carving in the side wall and surrounding corridor are magnificent.
