Transit Theodolite

The Transit Theodolite is a surveying instrument made in France that was used for surveying in the construction of the Asaka Canal. It cost a huge fortune of about 664 yen back then (equivalent to about 26 million yen now), and was able to measure horizontal and vertical angles precisely. The compass needle that points to the west is represented by an “O” instead of a “W”, which is a rare sight.
