Japan has a long rainy season, and there are many words associated with rain, such as Tsuyu, "rainy season", and Akisame, "autumn rain”. In Japan, where people have lived in harmony with rain for many years, rain chains have long been used in temples, shrines, and traditional Japanese architecture as a building ornament to embrace as well as express the seasons and emotions.

02Graceful Flow of Water

The graceful flow and sound of water brings richness and moves people's hearts.
The Seo Rain Chains offers a moment of appreciation by creating a beautiful flow of water and a wonderful sound to enjoy the rain.

03A Highly Designed Rain Chains that Adapts to a Variety of Architectural Styles

In Japan, a country with abundant rainfall and predominantly wooden architectural structures, buildings with deep eaves have been built to protect against corrosion. Rain chain was born in Japan because it was difficult to install typical rain gutters with deep eaves, and rain chains were structurally easier to make, allowing water to fall straight down from under the eaves. So, conventionally, it was designed to accommodate buildings with Japanese taste, but our Seo Rain Chain products have evolved into refined and simple forms to fit various styles of architecture.

04High Quality and Durable Chain Gutter

Seo Rain Chain selects only the best materials and has been making high quality rain chains since the 1960s in Japan, where it was first created. Our rain chains are made entirely of high strength stainless steel with no other metals, making it highly durable and able to withstand years of outdoor use under severe conditions. Stainless steel is used for all the parts of the rain chain that are susceptible to deterioration due to water flow, making it a wonderful rain chain that combines the beauty of copper with the toughness of stainless steel.
