On page 3 of chapter 9, Sakamoto is walking while holding two rods in his hands. What is he trying to accomplish doing that?

Sakamoto walking with two rods in his hands


Sakamoto is holding the L-shaped dowsing rods, which are used to

locate ground water, buried metals or ores, gemstones, oil, gravesites, and many other objects and materials.

Two L-shaped metal wire rods

The rods enable Sakamoto to:

  • physically locate the trap set up by Acchan and his gang
  • spiritually locate "points which require adjustment".
  • I'd say, in the end, it's similar to how a divining rod works. They often also have the symbolism of finding things other than water.
