Katagirimon Gate

Katsumoto Katagiri, known to be one of the Seven Spears of Shizugatake and a chief retainer of the Toyotomi family, was involved in the construction of Yakushiji Temple as fushin bugyo (administrator of civil engineering) and this gate was the main gate of the lodging house which he used to live in. It is said that Katsumoto used to pass this gate on horseback. The gate was relocated to the Jiko-in Temple in Nara Prefecture, then was moved later in 1916 to the site of Mitsui family bettei Shiroyama-so (villa) in Ooiso-machi Kanagawa Prefecture.
