Gora Cow-Bell

That was the first thing that came into my head when I saw this Cow-Shaped Bell hanging in the railway station at Gora, Japan.

And Elder Daughter was only too happy to oblige.

Gora Cow-Bell

Elder Daughter rings the Cow-Bell, simultaneously heeding the instructions of an elderly Japanese gentleman at the railway station and an invisible Christopher Walken.

Do any of my Esteemed Readers have any idea what the significance of a Cow-Shaped Railway Station Bell might be? Folk art? Religion? Or just plain Local Dopiness?
