The gate design for this entrance to Kanazawa Castle is typical with a change of direction once through the first gate before hitting the second. Defences are improved with the presence of a moat around half of the building (there is an outer moat as well as other defensive walls).
For attack, a height advantage is obtained with views down to the moat, gate and outside walls.
