Time bell tower also known as Toki no Kane in Japanese, located in Saitama prefecture northwest of Tokyo. This structure was built in 16th century and it was renovated several times during the 18th and 19th century. Kawagoe city designated this strucutre as Tangible cultural asset in 1958.

Landmark of Kawagoe. Many people hang around here to click photos there’s a little shrine inside as well. Well preserved bell tower.

If you like bell tower and love the cartoon "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba", then Toki no Kane would be your cup of tea. The Taishō era (大正時代, Taishō jidai)  was a period in the history of Japan dating from 30 July 1912 to 25 December 1926, coinciding with the reign of Emperor Taishō. The new emperor was a sickly man, which prompted the shift in political power from the old oligarchic group of elder statesmen (or genrō) to the Imperial Diet of Japan and the democratic parties. Thus, the era is considered the time of the liberal movement known as Taishō Democracy; it is usually distinguished from the preceding chaotic Meiji era and the following militaristic-driven first part of the Shōwa era.

i took this day trip from tokyo as the cap to my week-long vacation in japan and i was glad i did. i came on a sunday in september and it was very crowded but i still enjoyed viewing the structures from the edo period. lots of street snacks to choose from and definitely sweet potatoes in every form

The bell tower stands as a landmark of Kawagoe and everyone visiting will surely take photo here. It has a little shrine inside. It was worth seeing and knowing the town history. *Kawagoe, Japan
