On the New Year's Eve night, the bell squeezes 108 times to welcome the New Year with a clean mind and body except for troubles. This is a year-end regular event in Japanese Buddhist temples.
"Yoroshi" means "night excluding the old year" and means the night of New Year's Eve (Omisoka) on December 31st.
In the bell of the night we have put the meaning of "thank you for the merits of the Buddha as we welcome the new year, remove our 108 troubles, and welcome the new year with peace" You
