Fûrin, the japanese chime - 風鈴

Fûrin are small chimes that the japanese hang near doors and windows in the summer. It is a traditional japanese decorative item.

Arrived from China with Buddhism, the furins were used to protect temples from evil spirits. The object became popular in the 18th century.
When air conditioning did not exist, the japanese would relax with fūrin because the ringing of the bells gave them a feeling of coolness.
 
Traditionally shaped fûrin are made of ceramic, but there are metal and glass. There is a small piece of paper hung below (tansatsu), which thanks to the wind, will cause the cord and the zetsu to move and make the chime sound.
