The approach to Nishi-Otani Temple is viewed from the western edge of Entsu Bridge, facing east. There are two giant pine trees by the sanmon gate in the back. This stone bridge was built in 1865. It was referred to as a "spectacles bridge" because of its shape. It was famous for its red and white lotus flowers in the mid-19th century. There are teahouses with benches on the northwestern edge of the bridge. Taken by F. Beato.
