Kaito-ro, a covered bridge connects the north edge of Engetsu-chi pond and the north island at Shosei-en Garden - designed as a retreat for the chief priest Sen'nyo. Shosei-en is also called Kikoku-tei "Orange Mansion" because it was once surrounded by orange groves. The garden is a Chisen-Kaiyu-Shiki teien that is a pond garden, or strolling garden with buildings such as tea-ceremony houses and bridges throughout the grounds.
