There is a green, duck-like creature that lives in the lake at the base of Mother's Hill. However, there is more to this creature than a simple, made-up character. In fact, the Kappa is actually a part of Japanese folk-lore. It is a mythical creature that resembles a duck, and supposedly loves cucumbers. And of course, cucumbers are the Kappa's favorite in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature as well.

Title translation
