Rain chains also known as kusari doi after their Japanese name, originated in Japan and are alternatives to the downspout component in a traditional rain gutter system. Their purpose is both decorative and functional - to make a water feature from the transportation of rainwater cascading downwards into a drain or to a storage container. (Rainwater, collected for household usage has now been given the new name - Water Harvesting.) With the growing awareness regarding water scarcity people are relying on rain chains to collect and reuse rain water.
Rain chain are typically either a series of metal cups, linked together with a hole in the bottom of each, or chain links that span vertically. Most rain chains are made keeping in mind the basic premise of collecting rain water, so they have a wide mouth to capture rain which narrows down to a small opening to expel the rain water to the next cup. This minimizes spillage and splashing so most of the rain water travels down the length of the rain chain and can be collected for further re-use.
Rain chains work exactly like American downspouts, but in a way that evokes pleasure and delight. Over a period of time rain chains have been modified to suit current needs and trends. The simple cups have given way to more stylish cups connected together with equally stylish links.
