Decorative Structure

Out of all the things I saw on my recent trip to Japan, I found the structures most interesting. The shape of the roofs, the decorations at the tips of the roofs, the decorations on the end of each ridge, the metal trimmings.

Although similar in style, the old structures were all different when you looked closely. The patterns to be found within the decorations are endless. I found the little circles at the end of each roof ridge to also have patterns, and the patterns of these on each building were different.

I can't really remember what this particular structure is. It looks like the end of a wall. What I do know is that is somewhere inside the grounds of the Nijo Castle, Kyoto, Japan.
