Entrance Gate to Kyomizudera complex

This is the enormous entrance gate (Shinto) to the temple complex. The complex consisted of several buildings, shrines and one huge pagoda plus the temple itself and all the grounds and gardens. Frankly it was huge. I think it also housed a monastary - we saw a monk chanting and holding out an alms bowl.
