|REPLICA OF THE CHOKUSHI-MON|
This Oriental building, the Japanese Gateway, surmounts a low mount. It is a four- fifths sized replica of a 16th century ceremonial gate, the Chokushi-Mon in the Japanese city of Kyoto.
After being shown at the Japan - British exhibition in London in 1910 it was transferred to Kew Gardens.
Skilled Japanese craftsmen recently restored it's superb wooden carvings and at the same time a Japanese landscape designer complemented it with a wonderful Japanese garden.
