"What is Hakusan Gongen?
Hakusan Gongen (白山権現) is a deity of syncretism between the mountain worship of Hakusan and the practice of Shugendo. While Toji is famous for its temple in Kyoto, it is unclear whether this item is associated with that temple."

This is a cast bronze bell known as "Waniguchi," which is shaped like two gongs facing each other and is typically hung at the eaves in front of temples and shrines.
