The Bukemon Gate of the Minoura Family

Historical Monument
A dignified Nagaya gate opposite the Tottori Prefectural Government Office. Originally at the edge of a moat in Higashi-machi, it served as the main gate for the Minoura clan, a wealthy, high ranking Tottori samurai family during the feudal era. Although it was nearly demolished in the Showa period, it was preserved and relocated to its current position after Soetsu Yanagi-a leading figure in the Mingei folk art movement-took an interest in it. It is the only surviving gate of its kind in the city and has been designated a Tottori City Cultural Property for its superb historic value.
