Kanade Windchime by Kyujo

A Kyujo Orin wind chime with a sound which suits the definition of a pleasant sound called "1/f fluctuation". Its clear, gentle sound is particularly soothing on a hot day. This wind chime will make you sense a cool breeze.

The paper strip is made of warlon paper that stands up well to water. At first glance it looks plain white. However, when held up to light, a watermark pattern reminiscent of the sound it generates appears. 

This wind bell is produced by Kyujo, a maker of temple bells and singing bowls. It has a gentle and very long lasting sound. The bell component is made of a special alloy mainly consisting of copper.
