The Inshu-Ikeda Residence (aka Kuromon or "Black Gate") in Tokyo's Ueno Park district is the former residence of the daimyo (feudal lords) of Inaba Province, present day Tottori Prefecture.
Originally located in the Marunouchi area of the Japanese capital near Tokyo Station, the gate was moved here in 1954.
The Kuromon has a hipped gable roof and twin sentry boxes. The gate is classified as an Important Cultural Property.
