Renovations on one of the main gates at Kenninji Temple are complete.
To celebrate this, the temple is holding a "rakket" celebration of the completion of a temple or shrine's construction.
Kenninji Temple is located on the edge of Gion.
The Sakuramon Gate was built in 1666 at a different temple, Myokoji. In 1885, the gate was moved to Kenninji.
Rot in the wood required repairs, which are now done.
For those in Gion, Kenninji is a quiet peaceful retreat.
