Site Preparation & Gate delivered - Sept 20th

Site Preparation

Viewed on September 20th ,2005 - The area around the site of the Sunpu Castle Gate Replica at Luaritzen Gardens (new Japanese Garden) is being prepared. Mini Mt. Fuji is being built.  The dirt for Mt. Fuji came from the site of the Gardens' new Kenefick Park.  A sidewalk of pre-cut stone block (slab) was laid from the road to the future gate entrance (See Map of Sunpu Gate Area)

Gate in a Box
A few days ago, the disassembled gate still in the shipping crates was delivered from a S.W. Omaha warehouse  to the gate site. The crates next to sidewalk contained the gate’s posts, beams and other structure gate pieces. At the opposite end of the line is a stack of bamboo fence “panels” In between are stacks of hand made roof tiles covered in plastic. Look closely, you can see the tile through blue plastic covering. (see the all blue photo below)
