Wind chimes


The furin consists of the bowl-shaped exterior, the zetsu (clapper) on the inside that produces the sound, and a strip of paper that is hung from the zetsu. With just these three parts, the furin is able to emit the beautiful sound that is reminiscent of the Japanese summer. Even though traditionally the furin was used to ward away evil and epidemics, nowadays people simply enjoy its cooling sound during the hot summer days.
