The Yokohama Friendship Bell, also known as the San Diego Japanese Friendship Bell, is a bronze bell located in beautiful Shelter Island, California. It was given to the city of San Diego by its sister city of Yokohama Japan in 1958 to commemorate the international friendship between the two cities. The bell is rung on special occasions such as the anniversary of the City of San Diego's incorporation and other important occasions. The bell is located in a garden surrounded by trees, providing a peaceful setting for reflection on the importance of friendship and understanding between different cultures. The bell was cast in Yokohama Japan using traditional methods, and has been an important part of San Diego's civic life since its installation. It is a reminder that the friendship between San Diego and Yokohama will always be strong, no matter what changes may come in the future. The bell also serves as a symbol of hope for peace between all nations.

The large bronze bell housed in a pagoda structure was designd by artist  - Masahiko Katori.
