This unique, torii-shaped structure is just outside the station. It's a large structure well worth the short walk -- photos don't completely capture the effects. Nearby water features add to the attraction.

Visited after dinner. Less people around and you can take a good photo without the crowds. Just right outside the station.

Inside the shopping area in the station there is a scale model of the arch together with information. It is based on a tsuzumi, a Japanese instrument and is multi purpose.
