The Kakehi (Bamboo Fountain) is a waterspout consisting of a vertical bamboo pipe in which the internal part of each node (joint) has been bored out to accept a plastic hosepipe. At the head of the vertical bamboo pipe a "Komagshira" or scorched timber joint drilled out to accept the vertical and horizontal bamboo pipes, the komagashira timber top section is either square in section or round.
The " Kakehi " has a number of uses, used to feed water into a stone water basin (Chozubachi) or to trickle water into the end of a Deer Scarer (Shishi-Odoshi). It can simply be used on its our as a water fountain to pour water onto a stream or pond and creates an interesting feature into any water garden setting or Koi pond.
Our Kakehi are supplied ready to install into your garden complete with internal plastic hose.
