Giant Ghibli Miyazaki Clock - The sheer size of the giant clock is surprising enough: 60 feet wide and made of over 20 tons of copper and steel. But what makes it really, really special are the cuckoo-clock-like shows it puts out 4 times a day for admiring crowds. When the clock springs to life, a mechanical ballet with blacksmiths, puffing cannons, twirling wheels and slamming doors move in a kind of mechanized show. Officially it is known as the Nittele Really Big Clock as it is on the Nittele Tower in Shiodome Tokyo, home of Nippon Television. The clock was designed by Hayao Miyazaki, the director and co-founder of Studio Ghibli. The giant Ghibli clock is the largest animated clock in the world. The mechanized, animated shows start exactly 4 minutes before the hours of 12 noon, 3, 6 and 8 pm daily. But remember that half our lives is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed trying to save.
