Upon entering Canlis, many will see a wooden door-looking structure hanging on the wall and simply dismiss it as a piece of art. This 17th century piece is known as a kura door. A kura door is the innermost door to a traditional Japanese house used to safely store valuables, and is a great symbol for Canlis. It means you do not need to worry because whatever is through the door is safe. It means at Canlis you are in good hands.
