Ashikagashi Yakata 足利氏館
Description The North Gate is a Yakuimon style of gate. Original Yakuimon gates are rare since they are an older style that were eventually replaced by Koraimon gates. This picture shows easily the structure of Yakuimon gates. Basically, in a yakuimon one roof covers the front main pillars, the door and the support pillars behind the main pillars.
