Teru Teru Bozu Wind Chimes

"Teru Teru Bozu" is a classic Buddhist tradition and the little white dolls can be seen hanging all over Japan.

... traditional hand-made doll made of white paper or cloth that Japanese farmers began hanging outside of their window by a string. This amulet is supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to stop or prevent a rainy day. "Teru" is a Japanese verb which describes sunshine, and a "bōzu" is a Buddhist monk (compare the word bonze), or in modern slang, "bald-headed."

These Teru Teru Bozu's are not made of cloth and are beautiful wind chimes you can keep forever.
Made of porcelain, you can choose the facial expressions available, or draw your own. Wipe clean and place a smiley, frown or other expression dependent upon your mood.

Price begins at 2940 yen, order via Rinkya Stores

Those are simple but cute! Have you seen a wind spinner before? They're like wind chimes too but certainly more flamboyant than these!
