A traditional stone tsukubai on the street outside a house in Naramachi, Nara. The rustic and traditional bamboo fence behind, the white gravel and sparse plantings contrast with the modern concrete alcove into which it is built.
The tsukubai is fed by an out of sight pipe under the alcove above that dribbles water down from above.
