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.
