This market sells 900 colorful varieties of wind chimes, with 30,000 pieces on sale from all over Japan every year.
Wind chimes were introduced from China by monks.
The Japanese Temple used wind chimes for amulets to ward off evil spirits.
The wind chimes are traditionally sold and displayed in summer as they ring in the breeze and therefore relief from the heat.
