About Us

Our factory is a bell foundry in Uzumasa ,Kyoto ,Japan.

Our founder Sotetsu IWASAWA established our foundry in 1944.
He has learned from Japanese tradition from a long time ago. Finally,he created the original sound of the Japanese bell under the guidance of one acoustician.
Until now, we have produced more than 4,500 bells not only in Japan but also in 10 countries overseas.


The Effects of Japanese Bell

The sound of the bell consists of three parts.
The first striking sound is called "Atari", the second roaring high note is called "Oshi", and the third lingering sound is called "Okuri".
Sounds with all three beats are considered to be good sounds.
It is said that listening to the sound of the bell has a positive effect on the brain and has the same effect as meditation.
You can rediscover yourself and find peace by listening to Japanese bells.
Let's ring the bell to calm your mind and pray for peace.
