Furin (wind-bell) is a traditional Japanese sound instrument. They produce a cool sound when the wind blows, and have become a summer tradition in Japan. The most common style is to hang them from the eaves of a house, but recently they have come to be enjoyed as interior tools.

Kaga Furin is a wind-bell offered at Fushin’an. It is characterized by the fact that the body made of glass is painted from the inside.

The Japanese tea ceremony, also called the Way of Tea, is a Japanese cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of matcha, powdered green tea. In Japanese, it is called SADO.
