(Koto of water-drips)
Sui-kin-kutsu was set up at Eikando.
Sui-kin-kutsu is a sound ornament for Japanese garden. The structure is very simple. A big jar with a small hole on the bottom is set up-side down on the pan with water. Water drips from the hole onto the water in the pan and makes a low sound. The big jar echoes with the sound of water-drips.
When you visit Eikando, please pour water gently and concentrate your attention to listen to the low sound of water-drips. You can hear the beautiful sound like a Koto, a Japanese harp.
Please enjoy the sound of Sui-kin-kutsu.
