Honsenji

Attractions, Religious buildings and sites Samezu

The great bell at Shinagawa's Honsenji was once taken out of the country (nobody is sure why), subsequently found in Geneva, then returned to Japan in 1930. Because this bell (kane in Japanese) was returned, it has also become a symbol of good fortune for returns in terms of money (also kane in Japanese) – a pretty popular bell, then, as far as bell popularity goes.
