||| 風鈴 | Furin
Wind bells or chimes are known as furin in Japan. A furin is a small bell made of metal or porcelain that hangs and rings in the wind. These wind bells lend Japanese summers a poetic charm. During the steamy season, people hang furin from the edge of their eaves and then enjoy the cool sounds when the bells swing and ring in the breeze.
