Time to Get Wet

While, in general, digital clocks may be more common compared to their analogue cousins - this one is a delightful liquid variation. This clock displays the liquid like flow of time using controlled fountains of water. This clock is located in full public view just outside the impressive gate to the Kamazawa JR train station. Also, it is more than just a clock - the adjustable valving that forms the clock's numeric digits is also used to spell out text messages in both Japanese and English (as in the photograph).
