 South Garden

Enclosed by a tiled roof, white-painted, vermillion pillared corridor, the graveled South Garden in front of Shishinden Hall was where imperial guests have audiences with the emperor. Some official ceremonies also took place here. This picture looks inside the garden from an opening along the east corridor. Jomeimon Gate is seen on the left side (south side) of the garden.
