Miyazaki Steampunk Clock at NTV Shiodome, Tokyo.

This steampunk themed clock designed by the famous Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli is the largest animated clock in the world.  The clock was completed in December 2006 after a design period of over four years.

The enormous copper clock is 12 metres high, 18 metres wide, and has extensive animations timed to music including firing steam cannon, moving figures, and moving legs like Howl’s Moving Castle.

The clock was built by sculptor Shachimaru Kunio who also built the giant Laputa robot on the rooftop of the Ghibli museum.  Miyazaki said that he wanted to make something that would be loved by future generations that would last beyond his animated characters.
