Ready to literally ring in the New Year? Gather your loved ones and come to the museum this Sunday morning to ring a giant 16th-century temple bell as part of a Japanese Buddhist tradition. Bring your partner, bring your BFFs, bring your siblings, your fam bam, your community group, your dogwalker, bring everyone.
Let the reverberations of the bell ringing wash over you, eliminate the bad stuff of 2012, and wipe the slate clean for 2013. Joya no Kane entails ringing the temple bell 108 times to curb the 108 bonno (mortal desires), which, according to Buddhist relief, torment humankind and lead to bad actions.
We highly recommend this peaceful, FUN, auspicious activity. Because who doesn’t want to stock up on good luck for the new year? Click here to get details and ticketing information.
