This torii gate stood at the entrance to the Great Buddha statue on the left side of the approach to Toshogu Shrine. The Great Buddha was constructed in 1631 and restored many times after being destroyed in earthquakes and fires. The absence of a protective building indicates that this photograph was taken after 1873. Only the head of the statue remains today.
