This is a Chinese style golden gate, known in Japanese language as karamon (唐門, lit. Chinese-style gate). You can see some of those gates here, including the pictured one, only before its restoration. This particular gate is located at the back end of the Kencho-ji Zen temple complex in Kamakura, and it underwent a complete renovation back in 2011. It looks absolutely amazing, especially when the sun hits it directly. The lavish decorations and all the golden reflective details are simply mind blowing. If you are visiting Kamakura, I highly recommend you stop by the Kencho-ji temple. On my both trips to Kamkura, I spent about four hours on the grounds of this temple, and I would not mind going there once more, and take my camera with me.
