The Sakayanagi Pothole, also known as Chikobe-ga-ido (well of bloody head), is one of the legendary sites of Fujiwara-no-Chikata. The name of the well comes from the legend that Chikata and the four demons threw the heads of their vanquished enemies into the well. It is said that rain will fall if the water in the well is changed during a drought.
