Brass, when used to craft instruments, is known to produce clear and beautiful tones. The maker of this wind chime was founded in 1609 in Takaoka City, in the Toyama Prefecture, which has flourished as a center for the metal industry for over 400 years. In 1916, the company began to manufacture Buddhist altar fittings, tea sets, and flower vases. The simple design and appearance of these items belies a complex and lengthy manufacturing process. Such an elegant design is only possible because of the advanced casting and refined finishing techniques of the company’s master craftsmen. Both traditional techniques and modern innovations are used, and constantly enhanced, to ensure a superb finish every time.
