Rain chain. Close-up of a rain chain being used to drain rain water from the roof of the visitor centre at Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico, USA. Rain chains are an alternative to a drainpipe and are widely used in Japan. Their purpose is largely decorative, to make a water feature out of the transport of rainwater from the guttering downwards to a drain or to a storage container.
