Broken Love Bell

Filed under: Chuugoku, Domestic, Interesting, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 12:55 pm

At a rest stop on the Sea of Japan coast, a love bell sticks out from the ground. It was designed so that 2 people would have to press 2 separate buttons at the same time to make it work. Perhaps it’s supposed to be 2 people in love? But the bell is broken!

Looking out at the Sea of Japan on a sunny day. This place is completely packed on summer afternoons.

The bell. It's particularly good looking if you ask me.

Instructions for how to ring the bell. Looks like you're meant to hold hands while you do it.

The sign says that the bell is broken and will never be fixed because it's too old to be fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience! But why keep a broken bell there as a blight on their beautiful beachfront?
