This is taken at the old Kyoto Imperial Palace, showing the entrance called the Kenshunmon (建春門), one of the twelve gates into the grounds reserved for the Emperor's use. In the days before the capital moved to Tokyo this gate was used for imperial messengers. Afterwards it has been reserved for the use of the Crown Prince and the Empress. It was recently beautifully restored.
