One of the Eight Views of Omi. It is one of Mii’s famous big hanging temple evening bells, built in the southeast of Kondo.
In the circumference, there is a revolving wooden paneling below, and the upper part is filled with latticework.
Until recently the roof was tiled, but as a result of the examination at the time of repair, it turned out that it was a cypress bark roof when it was first constructed, so now it has been changed to a cypress bark roof.
