Water is considered purifying in Japan, hence the emphasis on cleanliness in everyday life. Water fountains such as these, known as tsukubai, are also beneficial to hear the trickling of falling water to soothe the nerves as well. A chozubachi is a small basin provided at Japanese Buddhist temples for visitors to purify themselves by the ritual washing of hands and rinsing of the mouth. This type of ritual cleansing is also the custom for guests attending a tea ceremony. Tsukubai are usually of stone, and are often provided with a small scoop, laid across the top, ready for use. Enkoji is a Shingon Buddhist temple, number 39 on the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage. It is famous for its pond garden and stone garden, as well as its eye cleaning water well. There are many other Enkoji Temples around Japan, though this one is found in Kochi Prefecture, at temple number 39. Enkoji Temple was built in 724 under the emperor's orders. Within the temple grounds a statue of a turtle with a copper bell on it is legendary - the story is it that a red turtle brought a bell to this temple in 911. There is also a small pond garden with a massive moss-covered tortoise in the pond, surrounded by koi carp.
