Music Boxes

オルゴール (Orugōru)

A music box (also musical box) is a 19th/20th century automatic musical instrument that produces sounds by the use of a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder or disc so as to pluck the tuned teeth (or lamellae) of a steel comb. After the Second World War, large-scale production area of the music box was moved from Switzerland to Japan. Sankyo Seiko Mfg. Co. Ltd. (currently Nidec Sankyo Co., Ltd.) was the largest Japanese music box maker. See "オルゴール Orugo-ru Music Boxes". ウィキペディア Wikipedia Japan. Retrieved 2014-11-10. The Dutch first brought the music box to Japan. Consequently, in Japan, the music box is called "Orugōru," which is the Dutch word for organ.
