Japanese Fountains

Complexity disguised as calming simplicity is not an easily achievable task, but these Japanese fountains accomplish just that.

The first video shows the Canal City fountain in Hakata, Japan — the use of water was so unexpected that it was unclear to me at first what I was looking at. The second video shows a clock fountain in Kanazawa, Japan, and while significantly understated in comparison to Canal City, it is nonetheless impressive in its clever functionality.
