Tokino Kane ( Bell Tower )

This tower is a symbol tower of Kawagoe which bears national and local importance. The first Bell Tower was built in 1624. The present tower was rebuilt after the big fire in 1893.

Rising sixteen meters above ground, the Bell Tower, which preserves beautiful uniformity of style, is at above the same height as the famous Daibutsu or Big Budda in Nara.

Today a recording of the bell chime
rings four times a day: at six o'clock in the morning, twelve noon, three o'clock in the afternoon and six o'clock in the morning.
