Here we are !

This is the old style “Hyakutarou-dam gate”

How big it is !

Total length of 9.5m, and 5.8m in height.     The weight ?   I don’t know…

This gate was built in Edo period, 330 years ago.

 

Around the gate, there is the “Mito-shrine”, which worships Hyakutarou as a God.

The festivals which celebrates his donation will be hold twice a year.
