Some observations from travels

Travel Theme: Time

The Travel Theme for last week was about Time.  I don’t recall taking many photos of clock or any time telling objects.  However, A few months ago on a weekend in Tokyo, Japan, I did not forget this unusual looking clock.

Both clocks were on a tall post in a commercial/business area.  One clock face shows the current time and the zodiac stars, possibly where in the country was the vantage point to view them.  The other face shows an elaborate map of the zodiac signs, their time during the year and the time of day from sunrise to sunset.  Unique!

Don’t forget to visit Where’s My Backpack for more contributions to this week’s challenge.
