Fuulin

Does anyone know what Fuulin(or see this) is? It's the Japanese wind bell. I went to a Temple in Kawasaki today. It's located near Yokohama, Japan. and see a Fuulin bazaar. The temple, Kawasaki-Taishi, holds this event at this time in every years. It's a small bazaar, but there are many kinds of Fuulin coming from all over the Japan. Usually, you will see the Fuulin made with glass, but there are another material ones as well.


This one is fuulin with DARUMA face on it.




These ones are made with a metal.
