Tide gauge benchmarksJapan Met. Agency Benchmark bolt inside tide gauge hut, adjacent to stilling well
Benchmark relationshipsTide Gauge Zero (TGZ) = 1.587m below Tokyo Peil (Mean Sea Level of Tokyo Bay) TGZ = 3.978m below TGBM (from 1983 onwards)
Auxiliary benchmarksTide station BM 2.411m above Tokyo Peil (1997).
Other relevant informationThe TGBM is on top of the stilling well. Another benchmark is near the station which is used to decide the height of the TGBM and monitor the height of the tide station. This second benchmark is levelled in to the nearest first class benchmark which is part of the network operated by the Geographical Survey Institute, Ministry of Construction. Heights of benchmarks are described as above Tokyo Peil (TP).
