In the Kurazukuri warehouse area is this landmark time bell tower. It doesn’t take long to look at but it has some history. First constructed in the mid 1600s, it has burnt down several times. Ironically it had been built to also warn of fires. The current attractive wooden tower dates from 1893. The bell is rung at 6am, 12pm, 3pm and 6pm.

Not much to do but it's a must-visit landmark in Kawagoe. The area surrounding it is preserved Edo-style so it's pretty exhilarating to walk through the streets.

This place is an important landmark of Kawagoe so go for it. You will not only see the clock tower but also streets in Edo era styles. For me, it is worth visiting the Toki no Kane.

A bell has been rung in this building to tell the time since the early Edo period. The currrent tower is the fourth version after the older tower was destroyed in the fire of 1893. It is rung four times daily and we missed it. It is an interesting wooden structure with more interesting buildings around.

Just a short distance from the main street, warehouse district of Kawagoe, stands the Bell Tower, Toki no Kane, which is a grand landmark and symbol of Kawagoe. The bell chimes four times a day 6.00, 12.00, 15.00 and 18.00. The tower stood talll until the Great Kawagoe Fire in 1893 when the structure was destroyed. In 1894 it was rebuilt and this is what we can see today.

It's a simple bell tower around the middle section of Ichibangai shopping street. It's the icon of Kawagoe, but it's simple enough that just 10 minutes is enough to spend on it.

Old history on the tower and how the bell is being used in ancient time. Lucky they kept and/or restore it. Its easy to locate the street with signboard indicated.
