Cosmo Clock 21

Yokohama, Japan

Why didn’t anyone think of it earlier? Marry the world’s largest clock with the world’s largest Ferris wheel! Built for a 1989 exposition in Yokohama, Japan, the Cosmo Clock 21 stands tall at 369 feet. While the title of “Mother of All Clocks” remains unchallenged, the Ferris wheel lost its “largest” title when a bigger one was built in Osaka. But you can still take 479 of your closest friends and fill up its 60 seats. Exclude the first guy who asks, “Hey, anyone got the time?”
