I love small quirky museums and this one was great. It is a private collection that is housed in a private home that is endearingly shabby. The clocks themselves represent an elite Japanese fascination with Western timepieces--but the clocks were not just copies of Western technology. They were altered to reflect the Japanese sense of time. As someone else has... More

Unfortunately this museum is all in Japanese with no English translation. I’m sure this museum would be very interesting but we couldn’t understand any of the display descriptions. I would suggest the Museum owners consider providing some English translation. It is also worthy to note there is a fee for entry, 300yen, so if you’re a specialist as a previous... More

This little museum appears to be a private collection that has been opened to the public. It's probably a great place for someone who is as devoted to antique clocks as Paul Keating is.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
