Karamon Gate (right) and the Hall of Worship are viewed from inside the inner precincts of Toshogu, which are surrounded by "sukibei" walls of 160m in length. During the Edo Period, the gate was used only by high-ranking government officials and feudal lords granted permission to meet the shogun directly. This is a rare photograph capturing the inside view of Karamon.
