daibo hongyoji

Tuesday, we went to check out the fuurin (wind chimes) at Daibo Hongyoji.

The temple is located about a 20 minute walk from where we live.

The weather has been overcast, raining off and on and the humidity has been evil.

The wind has been krazy typhoon class!

You can see the fuurin (wind chimes) here and here.

Apparently, there are 300 of them displayed.

A smaller display than the fuurin we saw in Nara, back in 2017, which had 2500 wind chimes, but still nice to see.

There is another temple nearby that has fuurin displayed too, hopefully we'll be able to check them out.

are the winds ever so strong that the wind chimes break or get blown off? They seem to be made of delicate glass so doesn't seem too safe. I have glass and ceramic (porcelain?) types but am afraid to even hang them in my house.

I love wind chimes. I have one by our front door and another one by the back door.

I've had a bamboo wind chime for over 20 years. THAT is the best gift I've ever received.

I have not seen the "bell" (outer) part of the chime break V, but have seen the clapper (the "stick" inside) disappear.

I love wind chimes too Jalna, I used to have a big metal one at my mom's house.

Bamboo wind chimes have a soothing sound, Dawn...what a great gift!

Take care everyone.
