Benten-do on Nakanoshima and the path to it are seen at Shinobazu Pond. The Buddhist priest Tenkai modeled the pond after Lake Biwa and built the shrine to worship the deity Benzaiten of Chikubushima. The stone bridge was built between 1789 and 1801. Numerous dead lotus stems remain in the water, indicating that the season is winter.
