Gem Monument in Kofu Station

In the afternoon, I went to Tokyo for a project meeting. I arrived at Kofu station at 7:30 PM. When I was about to be out from the station, I saw the Gem Monument as usual; Kofu used to produce lots of gems. There still are many factories to make jewels in Kofu. By the monument, gem products are shown in a big window case. A woman came and activated the monument by putting a key on the stand. Somehow, you can buy keys to activate this monument.  I saw the monument move for the first time.
