This wind chime, or "Furin" in japanese, has the conic shape of the Mount Fuji, fine details are engraved on it such as shape representing the clouds around the top of the mountain and japanese Kanji characters at its base.
The sound of the bell is extremely clear and neat creating a very relaxing atmosphere. Being fully handmade, each piece is slightly different from another and thus unique. The specificity of Kashiwagi Art Foundry is the "砂張 - Sahari" metal use for the creation of their "鳴りもの - Narimono" meaning bells.
The Sahari is an alloy of copper and, at least, 20% of tin which gives its sturdiness and beautiful sound to the furin.However, in spite of its appearance, Odawara Furin are quite fragile and if they drop on the floor, the perfection of its shape will bend and the wind chime will not produce any sound.
A great point with the Odawara Furin is the possibility of choosing the color of the Tanzaku, the piece of paper hanging from the bell which catches the wind.
