Momentism 2 Video: Suikinkutsu (water chime)

Enkoji Temple, Kyoto

A few minutes of quietude all alone at Enko-ji Temple, Kyoto. Then, a listen at the suikinkutsu at this temple. A suikinkutsu is a very large ceramic pot buried under a water source of some kind, which allows water to slowly drip down through pebbles and into the water in the pot, where the drops resonate with a sound akin to a “fuurin” bell, a sound that is esthetically pleasing, especially in summer.
also, I want you to know that there is a website called “suikinkutsu forum” where you can learn all about them. http://www.suikinkutsu.com/
