Since ancient times in Japan, there has been a custom of displaying a bell-shaped bronze bell called a fuutaku to ward off epidemics and ward off evil spirits. In line with this custom, “Nanbu Tekki wind chimes”, which are popular in Iwate Prefecture, will be used at Kabukiza, Ginza Shochiku Square, Tsukiji Honganji Temple, etc. with the cooperation of the surrounding area, mainly in the Ginza-Tsukiji area. Approximately 500 wind chimes will be hung in approximately 90 locations, including representative spots where the event will take place and under the eaves of restaurants.
The design of the strip of paper features the “Senjafuda” pattern, which depicts the streets of Chuo Ward’s 37 towns and pictures associated with each region, giving a sense of Chuo Ward’s history, and colors the entire town.

Some of the strips are wooden strips made from thinned wood provided by Shimizu Corporation as part of SDGs initiatives, and you can also enjoy the scent of wood.
Furthermore, from July 19th (Friday) to August 8th (Thursday), a “Sendai Tanabata Decoration Exhibition Event” will be held
simultaneously, sponsored by KPP Group Holdings, co-sponsored by Higashi Ginza Area Management General Incorporated Association, and in cooperation with Narumiya Paper Shoji Co., Ltd. This event will be held. This event is a collaboration with “Sendai Tanabata,” which was held last year and was well-received, and will be held in Ginza Shochiku Square with a huge “windsock” approximately 6 meters long and the wishes of children in Chuo Ward. We will be exhibiting
“Sasakazari”, which are made from strips of paper tied together and decorated with the seven decorations of Sendai Tanabata.

We will also have strips of paper available for visitors to write their wishes on. Enjoy a cool and soothing moment with the cool sound of wind chimes during the expected summer heatwave.
