Photo of the Day: Nippon TV Really Big Clock

The huge NTV (Nippon Television) clock designed by Director Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli was completed in December 2006, five years after its conceptualization and in time for the New Year’s festivities.

The largest animated clock in the world at 12 meters high by 18 meters wide, this clock decorates the NTV Tower in Shiodome in Tokyo.

  1. I don’t travel out to Odaiba much anymore, but back a few years ago I’d take the monorail out from Shimbashi, and every time I passed by Shiodome I wanted to get out to get a good angle for photographing this clock. Thanks for mentioning that Miyazaki designed it – I was unaware of that.
