On the nearby Hida river, floats a small island that is home to Koyama Kannon. A small bridge will bring you to the shrine from the shore.
At Koyama Kannon, a Hayagriva is enshrined along with a silkworm idol. These days, visitors to Koyama Kannon seek to be free of sickness, to avert disaster, for protection while driving, and to assist in pregnancy.
Imagine a path along a riverbank leading to a temple that sits upon a small island, and you will see Koyama Kannon, a temple with a feeling of mystique and calm. The geese on the water and the quiet atmosphere only add to the island's quiet and unique atmosphere.
