The name ""Toyogahashi"" comes from a poem composed by Kobo-Daishi when, on his travels, he would be hungry and without a place to stay and he said that one night felt as long as ten. The custom of pilgrims not tapping the bridge with their canes while crossing comes from the teaching of Kobo-Daishi who said that if they didn't tap, they wouldn't wake anything."
