History of Japanese Timekeeping Through a CASIO-Colored Lens (VIDEO)
Our friends at DIGITALHUB.JP, a Tokyo-based multimedia production and distribution firm, recently worked with CASIO to produce this 3.5-minute piece on the history of Japanese timekeeping and how CASIO’s modern products fit into the conversation. Good watch - to see the rest of their work, jump to their YouTube or Facebook Video library. We’ll also be posting a proper review of the CASIO EDIFICE EQB-600 soon - stay tuned!
Japanese Timekeeping: Origin to Innovation
Produced in collaboration with CASIO, our latest feature opens up the 1,300-year-old story of Japanese timekeeping - from water clocks to app-enabled wrist computers.
In this video, we explore the tradition and beauty of Japanese timekeeping, beginning with water-based clocks (rokoku) dating from 671 CE, moving forward to today’s cutting-edge, app-enabled CASIOs. From origin to innovation, we learn about the founding efforts of Emperor Tenji (626-671) and the ongoing work of shinto priests at Ohmi Jingu temple, in addition to modern watch technology and philosophy, courtesy of CASIO Executive Managing Officer and Timepiece Division Director, Mr. Yuichi Masuda.
