Kamijinko, built in "azekurazukuri" (wedge-log) style and visible on the right, stores the costumes and other accessories used in the 1,000 Samurai Procession Festival. The building on the left is the "Omizuya" (washing place) donated by the Nabeshima Clan. To the right of it stands the Karagane Torii, the first bronze gate in Japan built by the third shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu. The double-roofed building behind it is the "Rinzo" used to store sutras.
