A Japanese wind chime, known as a furin (風鈴, literally “wind bell”) in Japanese, is a small bell usually found hanging from the balconies and porches of Japanese houses in summer. Most Japanese wind chimes consist of three parts: the bowl or bell-shaped exterior, known as the gaiken, the bell clapper, zetsu, and arguably the most characteristic of the furin, the tanzaku, strips of colorful paper that hangs and flutters in the summer breeze. As the wind catches the tanzaku, it causes the clapper to chime. Not only does this create a visual representation of the blowing wind, the gentle ringing sound has become associated with a cool, refreshing feeling.

Aritayaki  is porcelain manufactured in Arita Town, Saga Prefecture. Arita porcelain, which has been around for over 400 years, is said to be the oldest porcelain in Japan. This porcelain wind bell is decorated with painted morning glories, and strung on a baby blue cord. Each bell comes with its own paper tanzaku to catch the wind.

Bell measures 2 7/8″ in diameter. Approx. 14″ total length with paper attached.
