The townscape of the city of Kawagoe in Saitama prefecture known as "Small Edo" is still reminiscence of the old Edo period. It is a popular tourist destination where 6 million tourists visit each year. The clock tower called "Bell of Time" on the main street has been loved by the residents as a symbol of Kawagoe. The tower was first built about 400 years ago during the Kanei period by Sakai Tadakatsu who was the lord of Kawagoe castle then. Although the tower had been destroyed in fire several times, it was rebuilt by the later lords of Kawagoe castle and local residents. Current tower is the fourth one, and is a three-layered wooden structure that stands 16 meters high. It announces time four times a day at 6:00am, noon, 3:00pm and 6:00 pm every day. In 1996, it was designated as one of the "100 Soundscapes of Japan" by the Ministry of the Environment. The clear sound of the bell fills the travelers' heart with nostalgic feelings as it echoes through the town.
