2016: Kaminarimon gate in Asakusa

This huge gateway stands in Asakusa, at the heart of old Tokyo. Although usually known as Kaminarimon, or "Lightning gate" as written on the giant lantern (about 4 m tall, sponsored by Matsushita Electric), it is officially called Furaijin-mon, after the gods of wind (fu) and thunder (rai), who sit on either side. Like all other buildings in the area, this was reconstructed after being completely destroyed in the Second World War.
