“Biggest bell in the world”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Recently I had visited Kanon-in Kaga-tera and saw a huge bell there. The add says that this is the biggest bell in the world with diameter 5 m, height 10 m, and weight more then 350000 kg. That bell is not on the list of the heaviest bells of the world. Unfortunately, my japanese is rather poor, so i could not read well the add I got from the tample, and could not ask any detailed questions at the spot. That bell made deep impression on me, so I wanted to find more details about it. To my surprise I was unable to find anything at least in English.

Would be happy if you can clarify the issue to me.
