An Island Shrine

What we found as we visited all the temples, gardens, shrines and castles, they were mostly surrounded by water, or had lakes not too far away, reminding me of the moats of the old English castles. This lake features a small island with a small structure. The structure has a small Buddha at the base. Obviously another shrine for something, and that tree beside it, although small, looks very old. I wonder what the significance of the island is? Obviously something, though I didn't get a chance to ask. If you look closely, you may even see the use of bamboo again, under the tree on the other side of the lake.
