According to the legend, kappa live in a pool in a stream that flows behind Jokenji Temple and like to play tricks on people or startle them. On the banks of the stream is a small outdoor shrine dedicated to the god of the kappa, and it is said that if women with children pray there with their breasts bared, their wish will be granted.
