The upper tier of the gate is covered with dragon carvings, and the lower tier is covered with carvings of Chinese lions, supported by 12 white pillars. The peony carving on the front side of the panel is magnificent. The walls to the left and right are also beautiful. A corridor runs to the left and right, and to the right corner is the mikoshi hut.
