Spatiotemporal Bell, Kawagoe

(240+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Landmark
Though tucked away in a narrow alley, Spatiotemporal Bell dominates the shopping area of a small historic town. The tower has been telling time since the 17th century and remains a major reminder of the Edo era. Be there at 6 in the morning, noon, 3 in the afternoon, or 6 in the evening to hear the bell announce the hour. In the busy streets surrounding this popular landmark, you can buy sweet potato chips, a great snack for sightseers exploring on foot. Add Spatiotemporal Bell and other attractions to your Kawagoe trip itinerary using our Kawagoe vacation route planner.
