The only domestic workshop specialized in Narumono Shinbutsugu, a variety of items that make sound used in Buddhism and Shitoism ceremonies. Established more than 180 years ago, a special matal called Sahari, a kind of bronze created in our own formula, is used to make our products. Every production process is necessary and meaningful for a long-lasting, clear tone quality. Each item is hand-made by traditional casting technique using firewood.
In 2019, we established a brand LinNe and developed new collection of bells, whose usage is not limited to religious ceremonies. We also have collaborated with sound artists and composers as well as offered workshops in Apple Store in Kyoto, with an aim to communicate the tone that Nanjo Kobo creates.
