ocr-generated 大手門跡
The Site of Ohtemon (Main Gate) Bridge
「大手橋に接してここにあった二階造りの大手門は、佐竹義宣が慶長6年(1601)に
建てたものであったが、徳川氏の代になっても水戸城の入口の門で、前に下乗の札、後
ろに番所があった。楼上では太鼓、または鐘を打って知らせたこともあったが、明治初年
にとりこわされた。
This is the site of the two-storied Ohtemon Bridge, which borders the Ohtemon Bridge
and was built in the 6th year of the Keicho period (1601) by Satake Yoshinobu. This gate
served as the main entrance of Mito Castle until the generation of Tokugawa.
When this gate was in use there was a Gejo-no-Fuda (a sign indicating the place to
dismount from horse or palanquin) and a Bansho (the guard station) in this area.
Once people would hear the time being announced by the boating of the drum or the
ringing of the bells from the top of the castle, but it was demolished in the first year of
the Meiji era (1868).
