Spirited Away Sozu Bonsai Water Garden

Studio Ghibli anime ornament

Originally designed to make noises randomly to scare animals away, the sozu or shishi-odoshi are water fountains that use bamboo tubes which pivot as they are filled with water and do a loud clacking sound. With time, though, they became one of the signature elements of Japanese gardens and if you put them in a setting with a pine tree styled like a bonsai, you get the full Japanese horticultural experience. And if it happens to include a couple of popular anime figures, like the Spirited Away Sozu Bonsai Water Garden does, then so much the better!

Inspired by the 2001 film that won Hayao Miayzaki a much-deserved Oscar for Best Animated Feature, the Spirited Away Sozu Bonsai Water Garden is a scene from a Japanese garden including a sozu, pine, rocks, and bushes where No-Face, one of Miyazaki's most memorable characters, is pouring water in the bamboo tubes while Boh as a mouse and Yu-Bird are watching. Powered by batteries or USB and with two modes (automatic or voice-activated), it brings the atmosphere of a Japanese garden to your desk, complete with the soothing sound of the water going from one bamboo tube to the other.
