Osaka Castle, Otemon Gate’s Pillar Splice

Osaka Castle-Otemon Gate’s pillar splice (Osaka-jo-otemon-hikae-bashira-tsugite) - Japanese technique of joining two wooden elements without using nails. The lower part of the pillars has been repaired and reinforced with the traditional technique of removing damaged areas and filling cavities by joining new pieces of wood. At first glance, this combination seems impossible to do.
