Even in the dead of winter, it is possible to recall the sights and sounds of spring in your home. Just close your eyes and listen to the peaceful trickling water as it cascades down the side of your Japanese water fountain. Then look up and see the fresh blooms in your Ikebana vase and you may think you slept right through the winter doldrums.
Japanese water fountains and Zen garden supplies make it possible to add a beautiful touch of nature to your home surroundings. It is amazing how a room that includes a glowing water fountain can change the moods of everyone in it. Natural elements like these are a surprisingly simple and inexpensive way to make your home into a peaceful retreat and they offer the perfect complement to your indoor Japanese décor.
Most traditional Japanese gardens feature at least one fountain, and these fountains can be used outdoors in warmer climates, but during the winter they are an elegant reminder of spring.
A sophisticated Shinto lighted table lamp is the perfect finishing touch for a Zen-inspired room, and fits nicely on a tabletop. A quiet pump keeps the fountain running smoothly so all you hear is the soothing sounds of cascading water as it rushes down a faux stone waterfall. Visually stunning, this glowing fountain is designed to recall the principles of Shinto, an ancient Japanese religion that was a mix of nature worship, shamanism, and fertility cults.
