"Like most things Japanese, furin arrived in Japan from China about two thousand years ago through Buddhism. Originally used to protect temples from evil spirits, furin provide aural comfort from the summer’s heat. Many homes in Japan don’t have air conditioning, so people hang furin in open windows. The blowing breeze causes the bead clapper to hit the glass, creating the tinkling sound of ice in a cool beverage. The melodious ringing of the bell refreshes and relaxes the Japanese." text by Susan Miyagi Hamaker
