Daimon gate is a very large gate in Koyasan's edge. The gate itself is quite impressive, but you can see it in 5min. From the gate, you can walk 100m and you'll be near a cliff where you'll be able to enjoy nice views of the valley.

Where Kobo Daishi first entered what became this sacred area and the end of the Chôishi Michi pilgrimage route. Gate originally built elsewhere in the eleventh century and moved here a century later.
Great view, but screens over the guardians seemed unnecessarily protective.

Symbolic entrance to the city, with two large protector deities enshrined on the sides. The site is at the edge of the mountain so you have a nice view of the misty hills. Very windy. I was very tempted to go on the trail that winds up the hill (see photo), I wonder where it goes.

The Daimon gate marks one end of the Koyasan town area, the other end being the Okunoin temple. It is imposing, to say the least, but all you see is the outside of the structure, and by now in your tour, you may have seen quite a few others...

This was quite a long walk from my Ryokan at the end of town. While I'm glad I did the walk there's far more to see on Mt Koya.

Almost didn't go, but glad we made it. It's on the far end of town, but nothing is really that far in Koyasan. Took 5-10 minutes to walk there from Garan complex

The main entrance to Koyasan. Nothing much to see here except for the Daimon gate and its nice surrounding. Weather is cool here, jacket is recommended.

Its the symbolic gate for entrance to Koyasan. There are so many temples in Koyasan so we determined Daimon is a must visit place.There is just the gate and 1/2 is more than enough to visit.

So much too see and do here, all the temples are so very different in character. To think there are now only 143 here, actively in use. But at one time there were more than 7000 of them! It’s amazing. Many have been rebuilt multiple times due to fires, lightening strikes. But we appreciated that continual cycle of renewal

This huge west gate is accessible by public nankai bus orange line, I chose to use Kansai Through Pass ftom Wakayama. It's used for all three bus lines to visit around koya world heritage site so this gate is besutiful at sunset time. There are two deities protecting on each dside of the gate , there is bushes of hydrzngea blossoming in the summer time.
