Yokohama Friendship Bell

Yokohama1

An interesting site on Shelter Island in San Diego is the Yokohama Friendship Bell by artist Masahiko Katori.  The citizens of Yokohama, Japan presented the Friendship Bell to San Diego in May 1958 as part of the establishment of a sister city relationship between the two cities, the first such affiliation on the West Coast.  The bell has no clapper but is rung by being struck by the large suspended wooden ram.
