Ryogoku / TOKYO SKYTREE(R),Tokyo
This is a museum that was built as a base for the dissemination of information on the Seiko brand. You can also learn the history of watches.
This museum was established by Seiko, a Japanese watch manufacturer, in 1981 in commemoration of the company's 100th anniversary for the purposes of collecting, preserving, and researching materials and samples related to “time and watches.” It reopened in 2012, and it is operating as a facility for the research on time and watches and as an information dissemination center of Seiko. In addition to the exhibitions on the history and development of watches, Japanese watches, and the history and products of Seiko, there are hands-on facilities, such as the sports watch experience section and workshops. At the museum shop, the latest Seiko watches and clocks, as well as sandglasses for 3-minute measurements, mobile sundials that are a reproduction of watches made of paper used in the Edo era, and postcards of watches with high historical values, are for sale. The museum is an eight-minute walk from the Higashi-mukojima Station on the Tobu Skytree Line.
