On a summer solstice each year the tip of the shadow follows the curve of the stone wall. One can tell time if the sun is out every day of the year. The hours are marked with small brown stones.

Himeguri was installed At the Mitsubishi Sports Garden in Sendai, Japan in 1998, and made of corten steel and Date can muri boulders measuring 8 x 24 x 75.
