I was able to take a few pictures of the construction at Chokushi Gate today. I thought that the scaffolding is rather high in comparison to the gate’s height, but then I realized that it is the roof that is the main target of the repairs!
Being up in the scaffolding gave quite a different perspective on the Nio Gate and the pathway through the temple grounds.
In the foreground you can see the material that is being removed from the roof of the gate. Look forward to another post with pictures of the actual repairs in progress!
