Spatiotemporal Bell, Kawagoe

(2.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • "Time Bell" enters in the first earthquake-proof construction is complete and 1/10 as usual watch from can be as it is, however on the exterior part of the scaffolding seismic reinforcement of piled up around the House as the overall atmosphere is known as koedo kawagoe it corresponding to the what. Also look at "kawagoe-built Museum" in nearby Bunko (best collection) before "time Bell" Edo to feel me, "time Bell" 1 day 4 times (6:00, 12:00, 15:00, 18:00), recommended your visit this time because each 6 beeps visit time adjustment is feasible.

  • During the blustery North wind went on foot from JR kawagoe station. For missing the street was quite a distance, but is undeniably a shorter working hours in arrival Bell System of towers was wondering was what shrine. I want to make sure when I didn't have time to visit is not really in any sense a shrine at the foot of the Bell when you go again. When Bell top looked far down the main street, rather than facing the alley. It was a pleasant looking up at the sky.

  • 到穿越必定造訪的景點之一! 時光之鐘隱身在巷子之中。需要注意一下很容易錯過。 鐘塔由1627年至1634年期間的川越城主在城下多賀町建造。 現在的鐘樓則是在1893年川越大火的第二年重建的。鐘樓一共有三層的構造,高約16米,從江戶時代起就是當地居民不可或缺的報時工具,而現今成為川越的象徵。 ✨特別的是,每天時光之鐘報時四次(早六點、正午、下午三點、下午六點) 有興趣來的朋友要注意這是個時間點。
