The Hokkaido Shinkansen, which connects Shin-Aomori and Shin-Hakodate Hokuto, will open on March 26th. It is said that it will be connected to Sapporo in 14 years, so the land route from Honshu to Hokkaido is likely to become more convenient.
If you don't plan to use it, you may only think "Mr. (Takayuki Suzui), a specially appointed train conductor, hasn't seen it for a long time ...". Even such people can enjoy the atmosphere of Hokkaido at home, "eki clock" is on sale.
The eki clock is a wall clock that has been commercialized based on the station clock inside Sapporo Station. Takenobu Igarashi designed the "Star Clock" at the south exit of Sapporo Station.
The original numbers are easy to read and beautiful, and all the numbers in the lower half are designed upward so that you can easily see them from below. In addition, it seems that the "ultimate basic design" is being pursued, such as a frame made by aluminum sand casting / cutting and minimizing the distance between the dial and glass.
The size is 256 mm in diameter x 40 mm in thickness. The dial is available in two colors, black and white, and the price is 12,000 yen (excluding tax). You can purchase it at the online shop "design shop".
