Kumatakasha

Past Shu no Tamagaki is a pond called Shin-ike or Kodamagaike, which reflects the greenery on the mountain. There is a belief that when you are looking for someone who is lost, you clap your hands in front of the pond. Your clapping will echo from the direction where the lost person can be found.

There is a stone prayer area (haisho) jutting into the pond. An otsuka worshiping stone engraved with the deity name Kumataka Okami can be found here.
