  • It is installed in the eastern area of Dejima. It is not colorful, so it is not noticeable, but it seems to be able to measure the time of about 6 o'clock in the morning to 6 o'clock in the evening by the shadow of sunlight. It was installed about 250 years ago.

  • Do you know the Stone Clock? It is located in the site of dejima shokan. It is a clock that ticks the time by using the shadow of the sunlight that you know. There are a lot of things in Japan in Nagasaki, so it's interesting to see them. In the garden, you can see the highlights, such as mini dejima and Capitan Bridge. The real sundial was installed in the flower garden of Dejima by The Director of Commerce, Hermann Cristian Kastens (1766-67). Due to the shadow of sunlight, it can be moved from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the line indicating the north and south in the middle is twelve o'clock.

  • It is time to exploit the photovoltaic effect along the Dejima trading post site for a simple design. It is wrong of course it rains.
