The other day, I introduce Toy Train in [W:Wakayama Prefecture].
Here is another fun train runs in [W:Okayama Prefecture]. This train (it is a type of streetcar) has furin hung on the ceiling.
Furin are Japanese wind chime. (to read about furin, click HERE.) The furin in the train were made by a local Bizen ware artist because the pottery ware is a specialty of the area. The train runs July 21 to August 22, 2010.
I think the sound is beautiful but they sound better when a few furin make sounds.
Interestingly, I found another furin train in Japan. This one runs in [W:Gunma Prefecture] and has glass made furin.
The passenger lady in the video said the furin are fun and refreshing.
This is JAPAN Style!
