They are colorless and rather small, with a diameter of 4 cm. They come in a group of 5 or ten, bound with a string of hemp.

It is sponsored by "Rakunan Hoshokai,"
an association consisting of shrines and temples in the Fushimi area. Visitors purchase a fancy cardboard with one red stamp and a picture of a tiger, the oriental zodiac sign of 2010, for 1,000 yen at the first shrine or temple they visit. They collect the other four stamps for 300 yen each at the other locations, and "Dorei," or a clay bell, in the shape of a tiger is given when all five stamps have been successfully collected.

At the shrine 金澤八幡神社 Kanezawa Hachimangu in Yawata-119 Yawata, Yokote, Akita
there were 土鈴 clay bells with a Japanese dace with only one eye and 土偶 small clay statues of Kamakura Gongoro.
Gongoro lost his right eye by a hit with an arrow during the siege and 後三年の役 "Later three year's war" of Kanezawa (around 1086 - 89). Gongoro was just 16 years at that time.
He pulled out the arrow at the river 厨川 Kuriyagawa wna washed his wound there, thus polluting the river. Now the fish in the river have only one eye.
The clay figures and bells depict him and 石斑魚の土鈴 the Ugui river fish with only one eye.
