The Niten Gate of Daiyuin enshrining the tomb of the Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu has a Jikokuten and a Komokuten to the right and left in the front and deities of the wind and thunder at the back. The deity of thunder is painted red, and the deity of wind green.The two are guardians against disaster and misfortune. The expression of the thunder deity boiling with rage is impressive.
