Mishima Wind Chimes (Nikko Ceramics Store) | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Mishima Station 

[Mishima Wind Chimes (Nikko Ceramics Store)]

The summer tradition in Japan with a beautiful sound

The coldness of the spring water at Mishima is expressed by using light-blue glass which is blown to create fully hand-made ‘Mishima wind chimes’. Their shapes range from the traditional spherical, to stretched shapes, and even those shaped like Mt. Fuji, and one of their allures is that because they are hand-made, they all make different sounds. There are also wind chimes decorated with patterns, including those of Mt. Fuji and Mishima Taisha Shrine, and the Mishima water buttercup, a flower that grows in fresh water. Every year from the lucky day of early June until the end of August, particularly on weekends, you will see Mishima wind chime peddlers and feel the pleasantly cool sound of wind chimes around the town.
