Design Sleuth: Japanese Rain Chain

Julie Carlson June 25, 2010

Anna at Door Sixteen recently installed a lily flower rain chain, which got us thinking about this substitute for a rainwater gutter downpipe. In Japan, rain chains have been used for centuries; they produce a musical cascade of water that empties either into a rainwater receptacle or a drainage bed.
