There is a Sui-Kin-Kutsu. It is a “Koto” of Water drops(a sound ornament of Japanease garden).You can try this instrument at Eikando. You may pour water gently onto a big earthen pot
and concentrate your mind to listen to the low sound of water-drips. It was called that the sound is similar to “koto”,a Japanese harp.
When I arrived Eikan-do,it was 4 o’clock in the afternoon,so many trainee monks read a sutra aloud. In the sound of reading of the sutras,I could see many statues and TOuhaku Hasegawa’s drawing. It had an amazing and fantastic time. My freindintroduced me Eikan-do,and I went without preparatory study so I was surprised and really happy because I love his works!
