The last remaining women's gate. There isn't much to see but it is worth a short visit and the walk from town towards it is lovely.

they say Kukai's mother could not enter the sacred grounds on Koyasan, so she had to stay on the edge of town. This is one of several women's lodges that they used to have. Be sure to do the Nyonin-no-michi (women's path) just outside the Nyonindo that leads you to the Daimon.
