This is a "Fuurin"(wind bell)" The Japanese are always very conscious of the seasons and Tthe ringing of these cute little bells is as much a sound of summer as the cicadas in the trees. It's customary to hang them outside the widow in summer. There are many different designs, but generally two types: little dark green metal bells that are modeled after large temple bells and glass bells that are often painted with little goldfish or other summer motif. Enjoy the sounds of summer.
