Zojoji Temple, Tokyo ; "Joya no Kane"-In Japan, we ring the bell in the temple in the evening of New Year's Eve. We call it "Joya no Kane". According to Buddhist beliefs, 108 is the number of passions and desires entrapping us in the cycle of suffering and reincarnation. So, the 108 bell chimes symbolize the purification from the 108 delusions and sufferings accumulated in the past year.
