The light blue and dark blue chimes represented Lake Biwa and the ryujin dragon god, respectively, in the hopes of warding off evil spirits. The sound of the chimes is meant to inspire a feeling of coolness amid the summer heat. Above, a visitor enjoyed the sound and beauty of furin at the shrine last month.
