2@A gate following the same tradition as in one above, located in the west side of the roofed semi-enclosed corridor that surrounds the Shishinden Ž‡›‚“a of the emperor's palace of Kyoto Gosho ‹ž“sŒδŠ. It has a tiled, gabled roof and is painted with red lead pigment. It faces a matching gate called *Nikkamon “ϊ‰Ψ–ε on the east side.
