It requires a little adventure beyond Tokyo to get to this annual festival of Japanese wind chimes (fūrin). Craftsmen from all over Japan gather in Kawasaki to display and sell thousands of these chimes, which sooth your soul as they ring in the summer breeze.
You can also bring old bells to their recycling corner and enjoy the festival food offerings. Plus, entrance is free, which is music to our cheapo ears.
The festival is hosted by the temple, Kawasaki Daishi.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
