Toki no Kane

Toki no Kane is said to be built first in the Castletown Tagachō during the Kanei era by the lord of the Kawagoe Castle, Sakai Tadakatsu. The current bell tower was rebuilt the following year of Kawagoe’s great fire that took place in 1893, and is a tower structured as a three-story with a height of about 16 meters. It is Kawagoe’s symbol and denotes that “time” is indispensable for daily life. As of today, the bell rings for times a day (6 am, noon, 3 pm, and 6 pm).
