NI-Tele Really Big Clock

Public Art in Ginza & Tsukiji

Studio Ghibli's animation director Miyazaki Hayao collaborated with sculptor Kunio Shachimaru on this fantastic, steampunk-style timepiece beside the entrance to Nippon Television Tower. Four times daily (with an extra morning show on weekends) various automaton elements spring to life as the clock strikes the hour and plays a jolly tune.

Return in the evening to see the clock illuminated.
