Tokinokane (Bell tower)

Kawagoe - Saitama.

This bell tower is said to have been built by Sakai Tadakatsu (1587-1662), the 3rd lord of Kawagoe castle. The current structure is a rebuilt version constructed after the great fire of 1893. The Ministry of the Environment named it in the 100 Soudscapes of Japan.
