Giant wind bell set up at Gallery NOUSAKU

“Giant wind bell – slim” were set up at Gallery NOUSAKU, one of our shops in Japan.
It is 1.4 meters tall, 0.4 meters in diameter and weighs 30 kilograms. Given a hairline finish same as the original wind bell, it expresses a perfect harmony of modern design and traditional technique. Although the sound could not be enjoyed since we fixed a banner-flag instead of a ringing ball, this giant wind bell makes a good photo spot for your visit to Takaoka.
If you have a plan to come to Toyama, please visit the shop and take pictures with this giant wind bell. We would give a warm welcome to you.
