Come out to the Year-End Bell Ringing (Joya No Kane) at the Yokohama Friendship Bell at Shelter Island. Get in line to "take a swing" at the bell yourself or just watch and enjoy a very Japanese way of ending 2012. Hosted by the Buddhist Temple of San Diego and open to the public.
See my (Chris') comments below for more info. E-mail me if you have any questions.
See you there!
