Japanese Antique Handcast Bronze Temple Bell / Edo Period 1822 / Hanging Bell



We have an aesthetic sense peculiar to Japanese people. And we introduce the unique items that only we can do, the route of purchasing in Japan, the experience value so far, and the way that no one can imitate. A cast bell made of bronze from the Edo period in Japan. This is a tool used in shrines and temples. It is used at the eaves in front of the temple, and after making a donation, a thick rope is rocked back and forth to ring it. You can make a good sound by hitting it. Also, "bun-sei 5 years" in the Edo period is engraved on the left side, which means that it was made in 1822. The name of the land is engraved on the right side. This seems to have been used at a temple in Ibaraki prefecture. There are few stores that sell such items at 1st dibs. We sell with confidence.
