"Furin"
- garden bell / wind chime -

Furin, a garden bellFurin, a garden bell made of iron or glass, has been traditionally one of the typical things Japanese in summer. When swung in the breeze, it delivers a pleasant sound most of us Japanese love and enjoy very much. 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.
Nanbu-tekki produced in IwatenoticeAs you see on our website, all of our garden bell items are made of iron called gNanbu-tekkih. Different from other materials such as glass or ceramicware, the sound of Nanbu-tekki garden bell is elegant and deep. It has a long history of more than 900 years, and it has been influenced very much by the Zen spirit of Buddhism. In this way, some of the Nanbu-tekki garden bell have been made in the shape of temples, its bell and creatures of Buddhism.
Since Nanbu-tekki garden bell is manufactured only in the very restricted area called Nanbu District located in the present Iwate prefecture, it is still facing the very difficult situation.
As you might know, Japan has experienced a huge disaster, the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011. Iwate was actually the second-worst damaged prefecture by the disaster, with 6,078 dead and missing. The number of the garden bell manufacturers has decreased to almost half of that in 2010.
Honestly speaking, our past manufacturer has been severely damaged and bankrupted due to the disaster, and we are now looking for a new manufacturer.
