In the park, there is a large camphor tree named "Kawago No Okusu" which is ranked 5th in the largest trees in Japan with a height of 25m, and it is said to be 3,000 years old or more and is designated as a valuable natural property by the national government.
In Nara period, Gyoki visited this area and sculptured a standing Kannon to one part of the giant camphor tree, and is said to have inserted a six-arm Kannon statue to the head of the sculpture.
