KEY WORD :@architecture / gates
@
A visitor's or regent's gate. A type of *yakuimon –òˆã–å or *shikyakumon Žl‹r–å used exclusively by regents, chief advisors to the emperor, and by the Ashikaga ‘«—˜ and Tokugawa “¿ì shoguns when they visited the daimyou ‘å–¼. The name refers to the gates use, not to a particular style. Such gates were also erected at important temples and at the estates of powerful noblemen. A 1-bey Yakuimon at Zuiganji ŠÞŽ› in Miyagi prefecture, is an excellent example. Rebuilt by Date Masamune ˆÉ’B­@ (1567-1636) in 1609, it is located in front of the entrance to the Hondou –{“°, formerly the Houjou •ûä. The roof is hip-and-gable *irimoya yane “ü•ê‰®‰®ª and the gable pediment is covered with white plaster, unadorned. The wall plate *daiwa ‘ä—Ö has an incised scroll-like design *eyou ŠG—l and the ceiling is the smoothboard dragon-painted type *kagamitenjou ‹¾“Vˆä.
