One instinctively knows that, going thru that gateway, all burdens are left behind.

I like the atmosphere of the temple gate. I had been to a university in Kyoto and used to run through Ogawa Street . Around the temple, there are a lot of good temples of Nichiren-shu, right?

@Mt.PEAR: Thanks for the visit and the comment. Actually this temple is in a part of Kyoto I do not go to frequently so I do not know the area well. If you're familiar with Kyoto, this temple is just north of Horikawa-Imadegawa and there are a number of impressive temples in this part of town.
Love the long line of the wall and the beautiful sky!
