  • Out of nine in the Kyoto Imperial Palace gate, is the most famous gates. Rarely opened when the Imperial Palace was burned, there was no gate is open only at this time. It is the origin of the name 'clam Gyo". Edo era, royalism expulsion of foreigners sect and the opening between violent conflict occurred. Traces of the bullets at that time remains still.

  • Among undertook escort choshu and Imperial Palace in Edo period, around the clam Gyo Aizu and Satsuma, kuwana clan battle was held. This battle is known as the Hamaguri rebellion. There were international group when I went to have a picture in front of this gate. Because the instructions are not written only in Japan, at the very least quandary in English to I. I thought.

  • Actors walk in late Tokugawa Kyoto restoration 150 years! Hamaguri rebellion changed (kinnmonnnohenn) armed collision incident in Kyoto in the 7/19/1864 (8/20/1864). Hamaguri (clam your changing!), motoharu change (gennjinohenn) and also called. There best known name in the Imperial Palace gate is ^ _ ^ clam Gyo (hamagurigomonn) is one of the current Kyoto Imperial garden of 九門. The official name of the original "shinzaike Mikado (accelerant on!)". The shape of the gate in Korai Gate type muscle iron gate. Be likened to the clam that is roasted on fire are strictly closed to open only this time not from the fire of the Imperial Palace, rarely open gate, opened, called the "clam Gyo". Theory after the big fire of hoei period (1708) or to any fire season and after the great fire of tenmei (1788) and cited.

  • In the great fire of Edo period was open for the first time, so got clam Gyo Street. I'm quite generous. Exchanged a fierce, guarding the Palace choshu-Han in the Edo period, Aizu and Satsuma and kuwana clan. This is referred to as the "weird Hamaguri rebellion' (Hamaguri). The gate remains gun bullet. Attractions is the Imperial Palace to look at.

  • It is one of the locations can be realized as what events in history, people were certainly. Closer to the gate you'll look good and seems to be traces of bullet holes.
