※Due to the coronavirus concerns, the Wind Chimes Illumination on July 17th has been canceled.

"Wind Chime Festival" is a 2-months festival held every summer at Ofusa Kannon Temple in Kashihara City, Nara Prefecture.
The festival features around 2,500 wind chimes (or Fu-Rin) hung throughout the precincts of Ofusa Kannon Temple.

Wind chimes were originally a fortune-telling tool in China. Since they've arrived in Japan through Buddhism, wind chimes have been used to expel any lurking evil spirits.

The refreshing tones of over 2,500 wind chimes sounding simultaneously in a summer breeze are beyond words. Visitors also can have green tea and shaved ice at the tea house while enjoying sound of wind chimes.
Besides, an exhibition and sale of the wind chimes around the country is also held.
