Statue of Kappa also known as OITEKEBORI .

Once a local who was returning home with his catch taken from the hori  ( moat ) was startled by a voice saying  "  LEAVE 'EM  "  ( Oiteke ) . 

Tossing back the the fish the man ran for his life .  The voice was none other than a legendary KAPPA whose statue now marks the spot in KINSHIBORI PARK where the incident took place . One of the ' SEVEN STRANGE ENCOUNTERS ' of the Honjo area.
