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.

This relatively large Chōzubachi is made of Shikoku stone (四国石), a very special and valuable material. Shikoku stones originate from Shikoku, the smallest main island of Japan together with Honshu, Hokkaidō and Kyushu.
The Japanese consider Shikoku stones to be national heritage. This means that they are officially not allowed to be exported to another country. Unless, the Shikoku stones have been a part of a garden before being exported.
