Old clock museum hidden in the backstreets of Yanaka containing about 20 Edo period clocks that look like contraptions to the untrained eye. The building and grounds of the museum is of equal interest—an overgrown backyard that must have many wondering if they’ve not accidentally wandered into someone’s allotment. Unfortunately, explanations inside the museum are only in Japanese.
