Japanese Daitokuji Bowls have a rich bell tone and very long sustain. They are excellent for inspiring the soul and healing your mind. The Japanese Daitokuji Bowl is made of heavy brown bronze, skillfully painted with a Japanese lacquer called Urushi. You strike the bowl's rim gently with a mallet and then enjoy its healing vibrations.
