Doshinbanshou

 

 

 

 

A bansho was a guardhouse during the Edo Era. "Do" stands for same and "Shin" is mind or earth, so this could be translated into "Guardhouse for people of the same mind-set".  The Doshin Bansho is one of the three guardhouses that still remain. The Doshin Bansho was built there for  the Samurai guardsmen who kept a 24-hours per day watch on anyone who came through the Ote-mon gate.

It was initially constructed in 1620, located east of the Kokyo Higashigyoen Park, after being burned it was again reconstructed in 1659 until further woes; earthquakes etc, required full reconstruction - completed in 196
