A look at the repairs at Chokushi Gate

Repairs to Chokushimon

This is the right side of the gate if you view it from outside of Goten. Things are certainly a bit messy!

Repairs to Chokushimon
On the side of the gate that faces into Goten you can see much more progress has been made. On the upper portion you can see the bare roof, the bark covering on the entire roof will be removed and then replaced. Notice that the wooden beam up at the top was actually covered with tiles. They have been temporarily removed.

And just in case you forgot what the gate looks like normally… The side you see visible in this photo is the same as the 2nd picture above.

I look forward to seeing the freshly redone gate later this fall!
