Toki-no-Kane has been very popular among the citizens and travelers since the Edo period, for Mishima was one of the 53 post stations on the Tokaido road. The bell used to tell people the time of the day.
Since it was made in the 1600s, it was recasted several times. In 1761, the Numagamis made a grand one and set it in Mitsuishi Shrine. This skilled work matched well with the surrounding landscape, and it was selected one of the eight scenic places in Mishima in the Edo period. The bell was the proof of the prosperity of the post station in those days.
During World War II, the bell was offered to the government for war supplies, but after the war, in 1950, it was made again by the local citizens. Nowadays it is loved by people as the memories of good old days.
