Kappa and Buddha which protect the lives of the people
On the left side of the temple compound there is a stone statue called Kappa Komainu (Kappa Guardian Dog). The head of this unique statue has a depression for holding water. According to legend the Kappa that lived in the river to the south of the temple once helped extinguish a fire by pouring out the water from the depression on top of its head. It is said that people erected the statue in appreciation.
