The small vertical height (12-inches) of this granite basin is on purpose: to cause the user to crouch down and humble oneself when washing or drinking water. This style tsukubai is available in four sizes: 12", 16", 18", and 24" diameters.
Other accessories for a proper installation are also available: black river stones, underground reservoir, water spout, water ladle.
Special shipping is needed for these heavier items. They must be sent by truck, as they do not qualify for UPS, FedEx or postal. The shipping cost is typically around $200-$300 in the US. This amount will be charged on orders. When actual shipping cost is determined, any over-payment will be returned.
