A wind bell of Nambu Ironware left by Mr. Rikucho Ogasawara, a caster born in Mizusawa, Iwate Prefecture. Its timeless, simple shape and the beautiful sound it makes are what Nambu Wind Bell is particularly good at.
Since 1963, every summer, 1500 various Nambu wind bells created at JR Mizusawa Station decorate the platforms, and they are chosen as '"100 selections of soundscape in Japan" that should be preserved' by the Ministry of the Environment.
