Could anyone tell me where Hamagurimon is located? I would like to know about the 1864 Incident at Hamagurimon.

Dear Sir or madam,
Hamagurimon, also called Hamagurigomon was the western gate of Kyoto's imperial palace. The battle that took place in 1864 in Kyoto between Choshu domain vs. Tokugawa shogunate and its allies such as Aizu and Satsuma domains is also called Incident of Hamagurigomon because the battle was the most violent around this gate.
