The Chime of the Time / 時の鐘
This is a symbol of Kawwagoe city called, “The chime of the time.”
It was built around 1630 but it burnt down a few times due to big fire.
This building was rebuilt in 1893.
Even now, it announces the hour four times a day.
In the place, there is also old temple which can give blessings such as health, luck and good fortune.
The building is about 16 meters high and you can easily find it because the buildings around it are low.
People living there are still hearing the sound while remembering the old days.
Most tourists visiting Kawagoe go to the building and hear the sound.
You can hear the sound with this video.
