Taking advantage the local technique of casting, Nousaku Company began the business of producing the Buddhist objects. They had produced the objects, teawares, and vases.
But Japanese people gradually became not to buy the products as the life-style changed. Around 2000, the company decided to develop the brass goods including the wind chime as a result of the sales decline.
