Kaminarimon Gate (Furaijinmon Gate)

The original gate, built by military commander Taira no Kinmasa in 942, stood south of Asakusa in Komagata. It was erected in the present location during the Kamakura period (1192–1333). At that time, statues of Fujin (wind god) and Raijin (thunder god) came to rest at either side of the gate.
