End of year ceremony
This is followed by the ringing of the temple bell (Joya-no kane).
The event – contrary to the information written in the printed half-yearly program – takes place at 3:00 pm.
No pre-registration possible. Those 60 people who line up in front of the temple early can take part in the ceremony. (Opening of the iron gate at 2:00 pm.) These participants in the ceremony have priority in the subsequent ringing of the Joya-no kane bell.
