Kannon-in (ω@) is a temple of the Tendai Sect of Japanese Buddhism. It was constructed on the eastern side of Tottori City during the Edo Period (1603-1868) by the ruling Ikeda Family.

The temple is best known for its landscape garden, which consists of a large pond surrounded by lawn and tall maple and pine trees. The pond includes small islands representing a crane and a turtle, symbols of longevity and health, which are commonly found in Japanese gardens. Visitors are served matcha tea and sweets as they view the garden from the temple building.
