27th Annual Bell Ringing Ceremony
Led by Reverend Gengo Akiba, the ceremony will include a purification ritual and chanting of the Buddhist Heart Sutra. After Rev. Akiba begins the bell ringing, participants may take turns ringing the museum’s sixteenth-century bronze bell to leave behind the bad experiences, wrong deeds, and ill luck of the old year. Tickets to ring the bell are distributed at the admission desk.
