Japanese Gateway

Chokushi-Mon (Gateway of the Imperial Messenger) is a near replica of the Gate of Nishi Hongan-ji (Western Temple of the Original Vow) in Kyoto, Japan.

Created for the Japan-British Exhibition held at White City in London in 1910, The Japanese Gateway is built in the architectural style of the late-16th century Momoyama (or Japanese rococo) period.

The Gateway has finely carved woodwork with stylised flowers and animals, with the most intricately carved panels depicting an ancient Chinese legend about the devotion of a pupil to his master.
