Tsuwano’s Tangible Cultural Property: Former Clock Shop of Fusei Family



In the 9th year of Shouwa (1934) suddenly a modern building appeared on the Honmachi-street. Even the newspapers wrote about it in excitement,  “A modern construction of the Clock Shop of Fusei Family”,  which was dealing with quality brand products.


The building is a two storey wooden structure, but the facade is cast stone with scrubbed finish, a novelty at the time. Later they used mortar for repairs.


A round hole is visible on the upper part of the front wall, which is said to have had a clock installed in it.
