Historic Site · Landmark
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.
