The wind bells of Shinohara Furin Honpo are called "Edo Furin (江戸風鈴)" One unique feature of Edo Furin is in its making process: The craftsmen blows the glass-ball in mid-air by using molten glass pipe, then cuts off the mouth and paints inside. The mouth is intentionally rugged for a better ringing sound which is also its characteristic feature. From ages ago, Japanese have endured the humid summer heat with the clear sound of wind bells.
