Crowds gather to watch this clock perform and it is totally worth the wait. There are large figures nearby and they are the characters from the story of Matsuyama which the clock shows. Wonderful display.

Fun to watch at 5 pm. This clock is a nice visit there is a foot bath next to it. The shops are near it. This is something fun to see and shows Japanese sense of humor.
