Kappa-buchi, located behind Joken-ji Temple, has clear water flowing through it and is covered with thick bushes, making it look like a kappa will appear at any moment. On the shore of the abyss, there is a small shrine dedicated to the god Kappa, and it is said that if a woman with a child makes a wish for breast milk, her wish will come true. When making a wish, it is customary to make the shape of a breast out of red cloth and place it in this shrine.
