Suikinkutsu or Japanese water harp produces sounds of echoes made by water drops falling inside the jar beneath. This unique device lets you hear the sound of water dripping below the basin. Some suikinkutsu have “earphones” consisting of bamboo pipes that you need to put your ear to hear the echo of water inside, others have been designed to amplify the echo without tubes that can be heard in the nearby area of this unique feature.
