'Sensō-ji Agyō .  This was taken at Sensō-ji's famous Kaminari gate in the Asakusa district of Tokyo. This is a Nio gate, the one finds in front of most major Buddhist temples. “Nio” refers to the two fierce-looking Buddhist deities Agyō and Ungyō. Agyō is the one with his mouth open making an “ah” sound. Ungyō has his mouth sealed tight, as to not let good luck escape, making an “umm” sound.’  August 15, 2014, Japan.  Text and photography by rekishi no Tabi on Flickr
