Clock Tokei

Previous blog posts were about Japanese girls (J-girls) apologizing and pretending to shave.  To continue this same theme, Bijin Tokei (beautiful women’s clock) is a site showing a different photograph every minute of a pretty Japanese girl around the streets of Tokyo holding a board with the current time.

There is also an iPhone app and a Google widget available. Due to its popularity, the makers decided to create a Gal clock (Shibuya girl fashion) …

Read The Mainichi Daily News photo special titled “Telling the time Shibuya-style with the Gal Clock”.

Finally, while walking around Akihabara one recent weekend, a photographer was taking pictures of a maid holding up a board with the time – a Akihabara or maid version of the clock in the near future?  Maybe TSOJ with his Maid Runner blog may be able to find out.

I’ll check the maids clock, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they do come out with one. I’d expect that they’d have trouble getting 1440 maids, even in Akiba….
