Last Gate Construction Day
Today, Ridge (side) beam tile installation was completed and finishing touches were made to the gate.
The Water wheel, the hand made in Japan, was placed just inside the Sunpu Gate. At far Right, a Lenten with stone path and water feature sits across the path to Mt Fuji from the water Wheel.
It was installed next to the road in Luaritzen Gardens before I arrive and was painted black later in the day.
Red Torri Gate, Mt Fuji
Today, Concrete was poured around the base of the Torri Gate and it was painted red. Construction of steps partway up the mini Mt. Fuji was well underway. Mt Fuji "Shrine" was reinstalled.
