We spotted this great LED light display at the basement entrance to the Seibu department store in Ikebukuro.
The Hikari no Tokei (”Light Clock”) is created by Yugo Nakamura and Yukihiro Takahashi, making use of eleven thousand LED bulbs. When the store opens and on the hour the clock also plays music.
Apologies for the noisy video; there was a loud promotion happening right in front of Seibu and I couldn’t shoot video actually inside the store. Though you can’t hear the music, it still looks pretty impressive and certainly has a way of beguiling passers-by…
