If you're not interested in the mythology of kappas, then this place might get lost on you. In front of Kappabuchi is Jokakoji temple, which is small but still interesting with its kappa statues. Our taxi driver pointed out that the lion dog statues were actually kappa dog statues, with little concave sections at the top of their heads!
Basically there's nothing to see here. It's just a stream round the back of a temple. It's also quite hard to find as the signposts disappear when you get to the area. We got directions from locals but it wasn't worth it. Don't bother!
This is a nice place to come to learn about the little kappa creatures that are favored in the old folktale legends. I really loved this places. You could have a nice lunch and wait for one to appear.......maybe. :-)
