Item description - YO07010103
Many Japanese gardens feature traditional wells built over natural water sources. The water from the wells was used as drinking water as well as for watering the plants and greenery. Granite wells with a characteristic square shape are known as Izutsu (井筒). The separate pieces of granite are put together in a firm way.

Since ancient times, Izutsu wells are fitted with a pulley system which can be used to lower a bucket into the well to retrieve water. Additionally, wooden lids were used as a way to close the wells.
