Streets of Marunouchi 丸の内 #2

Sometimes I try to see the landscape the way that medieval exegetes saw sacred scriptural texts. The medieval scholar of the Bible could read identical texts in productively different ways. Utilizing different metaphorical lenses you will find different things in the landscape depending on what you are searching for; if you understand that a landscape posses features that can be understood according to several disparate senses.

This is a large gate (Torii) marking the entry to one of the many temples in Marunouchi with an impressive office building behind it and though not pictured a mirror copy of this office building exists on the other side enclosing the temple between them.
