Nippon Terebi Clock Flash Panorama

View of Hayao Miyazaki’s Nittele clock at the Nihon Terebi Headquarters in Shimbashi Itchome close to JR Shinbashi Station. Sculpted by Shachimaru Kunio from copper, this clock is the largest animated clock in the world.

The clock’s 3-minute-40-second animations play four times a day on weekdays at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 8pm and also a 5th time at 10pm on weekends.

Hayao Miyazaki, the director of Studio Ghibli, said of his creation, “although it’s a machine, it’s almost life-like!”
