New Year 2013 Temple Bell in Ritto, Japan

New Year 2013 temple bell in Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture, Japan.

Celebrating the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, neighborhood people took turns ringing the bell beginning 15 minutes before midnight on New Year’s Eve.

This recording is available on my Soundcloud page.
