Mizubachi or chozubachi is a water basin. This one was constructed mainly for washing and drinking water, though most chozubachi are found at temples for the sake of purifying the hands and mouth. A similar object is the tsukubai though it should be noted that these are found chiefly at tea ceremony huts or Japanese gardens devoted to tea ceremony. This particular mizubachi was brought to Chinzanso Garden from Kyoto.
