Toki no Kane, Kawagoe

3.1
#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Kawagoe
Though tucked away in a narrow alley, Toki no Kane 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. Put Toki no Kane on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kawagoe road trip tool .

    Koedo centered the symbol. It seems he could climb, without also missed this if that doesn't.

    One of the main tourist attractions. Lovely street to walk along as well, takes one back to the Edo era.

    A bit overrated. Looks quite small when actually near it. Thought it would be taller

    Cool tower if you go at the right time you can see the bell being hit (can't remember the right word)

Where to stay in Kawagoe

You can find plenty of budget-friendly accommodation in the vicinity of Kawagoe's train station, Hon-Kawagoe, near the historic district. Options mostly consist of 2- and 3- star hotels that offer clean, modest rooms, and free wi-fi, some western-style and some with tatami floors. A number of traditional Japanese "ryokan", or bed-and-breakfasts can be found all over town as well. A "capsule hotel" lies right outside the train station, with tiny sleeping compartments, locker rooms, and showers.
