Japanese wind chimes or Furin


In Japanese, wind chime or furin, is one idea for mental relief .Made of materials such as metal, ceramics or glass. It has been traditionally one of the typical things Japanese in summer, people set small bell are hung from the eaves of a house or in front of the windows to signal the presence of a cooling breeze. When swung in the breeze, it delivers a pleasant sound most of us Japanese love and enjoy very much and they can feel a little coolness.

These days, furin are not always welcomed because of the dense urban housing conditions in Japan, but the distinctive sound still symbolizes summer, and during the hot humid season signifies a breeze.

Wind chime has a long history. It seems to begin in China, but Chinese used wind chime by a different way. They used it for fortune-telling and expel, because they believe wind tells destiny. Also, the bell sounds secure people from evil. Later, wind chime comes to Japan with Buddhism. So there are wind chimes at temples in Japan and the areas around the temple which people can hear the bell ringing are secured.
