Shibadaimon (芝大門)

芝大門 with Tokyo Tower in the distance

Once upon a time, Zojoji was a huge, sprawling temple of the Tokugawa family. I think it included all of the land which is now under and around the Tokyo Tower. One of its entrances was Shibadaimon (the grassy big gate), pictured to the right of this image. Now, if you walk from the Hamamatsucho Station to Zojoji you will pass through Shibadaimon several blocks before you get to the formerly inner Zojoji gates which are now the outer Zojoji gates.
