Yokan Corridor and Wakan Corridor

Important Cultural Property (Structure) Date of designation: August 7, 2013

An open corridor roughly 30m long connects the Yokan with the Wakan. The Wakan section of the corridor, designed by Sasaki Iwajiro, features a wooden Japanese-style design, while the Yokan side, designed by Takahashi Teitaro, employs a Western-style design that makes use of scratch tiles and Taikaseki tuff stones. The Japanese and Western designs meet and switch at the pavilion at the center of the corridor. The pavilion used to house the Usagi-mon, or Rabbit’s Gate, which served to ward off evil from the northeast at Komatsu Castle (the northeast is regarded as an unlucky direction and is actually called the devil’s gate, or kimon in Japanese). The Rabbit’s Gate is currently in storage in the Komatsu City Museum collection.
