A wind-bell is called Furin in Japan.
I love the sound of Furin very much.
In every summer ,I use it to enjoy the sound.
Off course I have many kinds of Furin.( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Most of Furin is made of metal or porcelain or grass.
I think light clear metallic sound is the best!!
Please listen Nanbu-tekki sound.↓↓so deep relax sound…
glass-Furin sound is here↓↓It sounds dry…but looks so beautiful and cute!!
porcelain one↓↓clear and light sound.
My favorite Furin is just like this↓↓3bell-type of Nambu-tekki.very soft sound,never be noisy.
it is often hung on the eaves of a house,but I hung it on a laundry pole of veranda.
it’s not looking good but sounds so nice!
Perhaps you wonder how it makes their sounds ?
A piece of paper underneath catches the breeze and makes the bell tinkle kindly 1/f noise.
Furin bringing on a feeling of coolness in the hot Japanese summer.
But in these days,sometimes the sound cause a trouble.
when you use it at your apartment,you have to be careful to hung Furin.
On windy day or night,too much bell tinkle makes big sounds without a pause.
So the sounds become just noise.
As I live in an apartment,so I choose a small sounds type to hung outside,and hung big sounds one only at daytime.
I feel little sad,but it can’t be helped.
This photo is HIKAWA-Jinjya in KAWAGOE,very famous shrine with Furin decoration.
very beautiful day and night…
Many temple or shrine in Japan hung a lot of Furin in summer time.
If you come to Japan in summer,you’d better enjoy Furin.
