Studio Ghibli Clock Shiodome Tokyo by sculptor Shachimaru Kunio
The clock was built by sculptor Shachimaru Kunio who also built the giant Laputa robot on the rooftop of the Ghibli museum. Miyazaki said that he wanted to make something that would be loved by future generations that would last beyond his animated characters.
I arrived at 1 and unfortunately it didn’t go off again until 3! it was pretty tricky finding this thing and there aren’t a lot of shops around it just a lot of high-rise buildings and the NHK headquarters.
