In Japan, Kusari-Doi or "rain chains" have been used for hundreds of years, copper rain chains can be found on homes, gardens and temples throughout Japan.
The sea darkens;
the voices of the wild ducks
are faintly white.

"Kusari-Doi" provide a beautiful and functional substitute for the rainwater gutter down pipe, producing a lovely cascade of water flowing gracefully between the sections of rings or cups, and are normally finished at ground level with a weight buried in pebbles to keep the chain taught in the wind, the water from the chain may be fed into a large pot or suitable drain covered in pebbles.
We are able to supply the largest selection of Copper rain chains outside Japan, our rain chains are available in many designs and of different materials and prices, copper chains being the best and most elegant, and in time will weather to a delightful "Verdigis Patina".
