Wind bells are traditional Japanese products which are said to have been devised in the Muromachi Period, almost 660 years ago, and since then, they have been a standard feature of Summer to the Japanese.

In Summer time, Japanese people hang a wind bell, with a small rectangular piece of paper, so called “Tanzaku” ,under the eaves of houses or the ceiling of rooms so that a wind bell rings slightly when it catches the breeze, thus giving them a mental feeling of coolness.
