In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
For lovers of unusual exhibits, the Seiko Museum is an homage to all things related to time and clocks. Located in Higashi-Mukojima, the museum focuses on the history of the clock industry in Japan. Highlights include a wide range of historical time pieces, from sundials to pendulum clocks to all kinds of wristwatches. Of particular interest are the traditional Japanese clocks which operate on a "temporal system," adjusted to reflect the number of daylight hours in a given season.
There are also guided tours for visitors. If looking to explore the museum at your own leisurely pace, you can rent an iPad to take an audio tour.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
