Item description
A Chōzubachi (手水鉢) is an ornamental waterbassin found in the traditional Japanese garden. It is used for the ritual washing of the hands and rinsing of the mouth before a person is allowed to participate in the tea ceremony or enter holy grounds such as Buddhist temples or Shinto shrines. The literal translation of Chōzubachi is: hands waterbassin.

A Chōzuya (手水舎) is a small pavilion located at the entrance of a Japanese holy site like a Shinto shrine or Buddhist temple. Chōzuya can be translated as: the hut where you wash your hands. This describes its function perfectly. It namely features a large Chōzubachi which can be used by multiple people at the same time. The ritual washing of the hands and rinsing of the mouth at a Chōzuya is an important part of respecting the holy grounds you are planning to enter.
This very unique and special Chōzubachi was once part of a Chōzuya at a holy site in Japan.
