Clock Rededication Ceremony

A commemorative clock tower, located on the grounds of the Hawaii Capital Historic District, was repaired and rededicated on November 10, 2016, after sitting in disrepair for the past three years.

The clock tower was donated by a Lions Club from Japan to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1991 as a token of eternal peace and friendship. Fueled by solar power, the clock fell into disrepair when the state was unable to find the parts to repair it. This year, with the assistance of The Seiko Holdings Corporation, in remembrance of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the clock was restored to its former glory.

The public can find the clock between the Kalanimoku Building and the Frank F. Fasi Municipal Building in downtown Honolulu.
