Travel Guide - Daimyo Clock Museum


Daimyo Clock Museum is the only museum in Japan exhibiting Japanese clocks used by Daimyo feudal lords during the Edo Period (1603 - 1868). The Tokugawa Shogunate fostered clock engineers called "Otokeishi", and the history of Japanese clocks had started since then. Daimyo clocks are handmade, created by the Otokeishi clock engineers hired by Daimyo feudal lords.
The exhibitions were the private collection of Kamiguchi Guro (1892-1970), a ceramic artist born in Yanaka. The museum was established by his son in 1974.
