Please think of wooden sticks to strike a bell at temples. In Japan, you can find it there for ringing the watch-night bell. By the way, that wooden bell hammer is called Shumoku in Japanese. Well, speaking of temples in Japan, Kyoto will mostly be reckoned. But they never produce any wooden bell hammers in Kyoto. Actually, there is just a company that produces wooden bell hammers in Japan. That is Ueda Giken Industry Inc. established in Nara.
