This is the Sanmon gate at the Kenchoji Temple in Kamakura, Japan. Sanmon is considered to be the main gate and is an important fixture in the layout of a Zen temple. It sits between the outer gate (where most visitors enter) and the main hall, or Hall of Buddha. To the right of the Sanmon gate is the Bonsho (temple bell), which has been declared a national treasure.
