So you have just received your beautiful Koshi Chimes and now you are wondering where to hang them and what you can do with them! Here are some of the ways I have used my chimes and ways I have heard other people using theirs over the years...

Recently someone called me to ask specifically how to PLAY a Koshi chime or two for a group of people ... so here is what I said!
