According to Wiki, it is originally built on the orders of Sakai Tadakatsu between 1624 and 1644.
The present structure goes back to 1894, a year after the Great Fire of Kawagoe.
It is a three-story tower measuring 16 meters in height.
The tower has been telling time to the city's residents for 350 years and has been deemed as a symbol of the city.
Currently, the bell can be heard four times a day (6 AM, 12 PM, 3 PM and 6 PM)
