Sand Blasted

A smoked glass effect is created on the surface of the glass by blasting it with fine grain sand at high pressure.

Using cut-sheets of plants, animals, and letters, etc., to cover (mask) the glass surface, you can have fun creating a contrast between the clear glass and smoked glass.

Finished works Can take home on the same day.

Museum

Museum

It is said that glass originates from around the 25th century BC.

From core glass (the oldest type of glass) to modern glassworks, the history of glass spanning around 5,000 years can be seen in the museum.

■ Main Works on Display

Core glass, Roman glass, Venetian glass, art nouveau, art deco, and works from modern Japanese glassmiths.

Additionally, materials which establish 100 years of our company's history are also displayed.

Restaurant & Café

A restaurant where you can enjoy Czech style local beers.

A range of snacks centering around Japanese foods such as soba, udon, and rice bowls, have also been prepared to compliment the beers.
