gate of tiger

Tora-no-mon Hills is a newly built commercial building at Tora-no-mon which was a west gate of the Edo castle, literally means a gate of tiger. Tiger is a symbol of west according to chinese constellation, and also suggests the season of autumn by the way.


And the open space on the ground floor is well arranged for visitors to enjoy the garden around the building, floor and steps are continuously designed in and out.


And the signs are printed on the surface of glass wall to prevent from accidental collision for pedestrian. The sign is a symbol mark of Tora-no-mon Hills which suggests 門, a gate, and possibly stripe pattern of a tiger.


And is this Dora-e-mon? No, it's Tora-no-mon by the same author. Similar tiger stripes are on his side.
