There are 2 islets on the South Pond, offering a clear geometric contrast that results from the differing forms of the monument, bridges, trees, boulders, and teahouse. The bridge, yatsuhashi (zigzag bridge) is covered with a fujidana (wisteria trellis) and it extends from the west shore to the islet. There is a stone bridge connecting the 2 islets and there is an arched bridge leading to the east shore. These different styles of bridges also contribute to the visual contrast. There is a waterfall near the bottom of Momijiyama, or Maple Hillock.
This is a teahouse that is located in a north-facing position in the southernmost part of the garden, from which one an enjoy the entire view of the South Pond. The name originates from a poem by well-known Chinese poet Li Bo (701-762)
