  • The museum is small, but it is still quite interesting, the collection of watches is not a 24-hour system, but known as the "indefinite system" of the ancient Japanese-style time system, from sunrise to the day between the 6 equal points of the timing method, feel that this small museum and the surrounding streets of the atmosphere is very suitable.

  • It is a small private Museum of Katsuyama clan residence marks a personal collection. In one genre under the name Mr. stupid kamiguchi founded main and big watches, the generally known as the clock of clock down four points with a pyramidal base. Beside the large clock was exhibited pillow clock, Pocket Watch, incense clocks. And will not increase because he collected exhibits are small but already has a new collection I thought it's surviving in ¥ 300 without deposit will no he is the President of big business conglomerates and the local people who without financial assistance from corporations and foundations are working hard. However, I thought would allow photo shoot much.

  • For a city that has been through so many upheavals, 1923 Earthquake, 1945 firebombing, 1960s double income boom, and the great 1980s real estate bubble, it is very cool to a find a place that all of this seems to have left behind. It's a time warp that includes a huge room full of unique Japanese antique clocks, one that is supposedly 1,200 years old, and the only one that works is circa 1820. No clock is alike because they were all ordered by different daimyo and assorted elites. Nicely situated between Nezu Shrine and Yanaka Cemetary, this tiny museum is worth the ¥300 and 20 minutes of your time.
  • A deceased man's collection of antique Japanese clocks (unrepaired and seemingly in need of refurbishing). Nobody comes here and the receptionist will turn on the lights for you if you buy a ticket. The estate it sits in is also out of repair and very beautiful. Great date spot if you're really weird.
