Furin ( Japanese wind chime ) in 100 yen shop

furin (japanese wind chime)Yesterday, I found some furin in the 100 yen shop in Funabashi.
Fuurin is Japanese wind chaim.
It is usually hung from the eaves during summer.
So it gives sound makes us feel cool.
I think it is useful to prevent global warming.

Is everything in the 100 yen shop costing 100 yen?

Over here we have Dollar Stores where everything costs one dollar. But sometimes they cheat and have things that cost more.

Hope your huurin is keeping you cool.

I see these at our local Japanese 98cents store here in California. I wondered where you hang them as they seem so fragile, being glass. I did not think they were for outside. If they are, then I will get some for the outside of my house here by the beach.

Hello, madison avenue baby.
We pronounce it like "HUURIN".

sorry I had mistake.
I shoud write it "Fuurin" in romaji.
