This is a large clock on display outdoors at the footsteps of the royal park hotel. It looks like a clock from one of the theme parks. Around it is an animation of characters. This is a nice contrast to the very modern skyscrapers around...More

The giant clock was made by Miyazaki and is just wonderful to see it come to life. A small crowd gathers at 12 or 3 or 6pm to watch the clock come alive and it’s really beautiful. If you are a fan of his animation...More

This amazing contraption of a clock only strikes at certain times of the day, during our visit it was 10.00, 12.00, 18.00 and 20.00. Certainly worth a detour if in the area

Situated within Shiodome Siosite the clock is on the fascia of the Nippon Television Tower. I enjoyed looking at it and taking photos but if I wasn’t staying at a hotel in the district I wouldn’t actually want to make the trip to view it...More

We missed the animated show, but it was well worth a look on the way. You can take the elevated walkway back towards Ginza.

This clock is three stories tall and located outside the Nippon television building, it springs to life four times a day but even if you miss those times it is worth a look, and a photo opportunity
