The Sanmon Gate of Chion-in Temple is viewed from the southwest. The tall pine trees south of the gate are slanted due to the wind, and pine logs are scattered about underneath. This is the largest gate of its kind in Japan, with five bays and three entrances. Built in two-story irimoya style, it has a tiled roof and was erected in 1619 by the second shogun Tokugawa Ietada.
