Part of Japanese-style paint drawn by Kubota Beisen (1852-1906) in 1891 from the opposite side of the River Kakehashi, clearly showing red -coloured Torii, the shrine gate called Red Gate, and the entrance gate through which worshippers visited by ships, along with many pine trees and white plum trees, where flood mitigation works of the river began in 20th century.

The above photograph was taken at 10am on July 17, 2006 from the similar point to Beisen's drawing point, where the total rainfalls that fell during the preceding 24hours to 8am were 130 mm and river height at the nearest location of Komatsu-Oohashi bridge was 3.81 m at 9 am. Currently, an expert committee organized by the Kanazawa Branch of the Hokuriku Regional Development Bureau, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, is investigating the problems such as the total water balance and its variation, change of wind movement, and approach paths, related to the construction of an embankment.
