Kyoto Sanmon Gate in torrential rain

The Sanmon Gate is a large wooden structure standing near the Hojo Garden and Nanzen-In in the the north east of Kyoto.


On the day I visited it was pouring with rain. A conventional photo was difficult, so I concentrated on aspects of the scene - the wood used to construct the gate, the shapes of the jutting roof edges, and the rain itself. In making the rain a feature of the image I am inflenced by Japanese woodblock prints, especially those of 19th century artist Utagawa Hiroshige.
