About this photo

Shot at Naritasan Shinsho-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Narita, Chiba. After passing through Soh-Mon standing at the entrance of the precinct, I saw another gate which I had to pass through. The name of the gate is 'Nio-Mon' and it was built in 1830. This beautiful wooden gate was appointed national cultural asset.

Like Kaminari-Mon gate in Asakusa, a big lantern was hung. And the enigmatic word was written on the lantern. 'Fish Market' in Japanese was written there. Its location was very far from the sea. I thought the worshipers came to this temple also from the distance.
