This clay whistle is a modern example of a fading Japanese folk art from Saga Prefecture. Made from special local clay and sporting a humorous expression, they let out a simple and soothing tone that is said to remind one of home. Choose your favorite pigeon, magpie, or lark and make a new friend.
Please note: These whistles are handmade and may not be exactly as pictured. Likewise, the larger sizes produce a lower tone and no two will be pitched exactly the same. These do not function as bird calls.
