THE JAPANESE WINDBELL

The other day in class, I learned about the Japanese windbell from my students in class. If you don't know what a windbell is, it is like a wind chime, but it is made of glass and is in the shape of a bell. They are unique in that they are painted on the inside. Did you know that it is said that nothing bad will happen to anyone within earshot of the windbell?  The samurai and noble families used to hang them in their homes. The sound of the windbell is very gentle.  I think it makes for a great souvenir, too. Perhaps I will get one for my father.
