Nyoirinji’s annual wind chime (furin) festival is an event that gives temple-goers the chance to prayer for safety during the summer months. A memorial service will be held in the morning followed by various eye-catching activities including a taiko drum performance. Wind chimes are available at the temple for ¥500 from mid-June. Visitors can write their prayers and wishes on the chimes, which will then be displayed throughout the temple grounds until September. The soothing sound of wind blowing through the chimes will definitely help take your mind off the summer heat.
