The Plaza is famous from the the Giant Ghibli Clock, which was designed by Hayao Miyazaki, the director and co-founder of the Studio Ghibli. Clock is big, ca 20m wide and 3 storey high. It is full of details, cannons to mark time, blacksmiths and my favourite, a tea pot. It performs a show at noon, 3 p.m., 6 p.m., and 8 .p.m daily and at 10 a.m during the weekend additionally. Enjoy the show. Otherwise area is office block with few restaurants.…

People start arriving 15-30minutes before each performance hour to ensure they see the whole show from a good vantage point.…

We made a trip out to see The Ghibli Clock in Shiodome to watch the 8pm session and it was fantastic. The kids loved it. It satiated our Ghibli passion!

I don't know about the "plaza," but the clock is one of the most underrated hidden gems of Tokyo. It comes to life at 12, 3, 6, and 8PM, as well as 10AM on weekends. The show actually begins 5 minutes before, so get there early, and prepare your video setting.
