Looking down on Akazu-no-mon on the NE side of Kumamoto-jo 不開門 (あかずのもん)熊本城
This gate historically was kept closed (evil blew in from the NE) but is now a shortcut to the crafts center across the road. It was also the castle's "garbage gate." In the Edo Period recycling people would go through the junk tossed out here and resell it, sometimes becoming rich.
