You can climb the very steep stairs to the top of the Drum Tower. One large drum and twenty four smaller drums were used to mark the hours of the day.
At the other end of the courtyard, the Bell Tower holds a 42 ton bell cast in 1420.
At the Bell Tower we went to a Tea Ceremony. I am bringing home “pure tea.” We will see if it helps my cholesterol!!
We also went to the opera. Quite a different experience from the European operas. It was most interesting watching the actor apply makeup and get dressed on stage before the show.
