Ohashi Kannon Ishibashi

御橋観音 石橋

Yoshii/Shiratake Highland/Sechibaru/Yunoki

A mysterious stone bridge like a floating bridge from heaven.

It is one of "Hirado-Hakkei" the Eight Scenic Views of Hirado Domain. There is a huge natural stone bridge in the back of the garden of Ohashi Kannon-ji. Around the precincts of the temple, there is a colony of ferns which is designated as a national natural treasure, and you can see a wide variety of ferns. Makino-dake Park, the famous spot for cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, is right next to it, so it is very popular as a place for a family day trip.
