Gishodo Suwako Watch & Clock Museum

This is a museum of time and watches where we develop and sell original watches under the "Made in Suwa" brand. Suwa is one of the homes of watchmaking and a center for the watch industry. We are the only place in Japan with a studio where you can experience assembling watches. The ground floor is a shop.
