TOHO BEADS STYLE Garasu-no-sato (Glass Village)

Experience the beauty and the romance inherent in glass...
A wonderland of glass, unlike anything else you'll find in the entire world; a place where, through the appreciation of glass artworks and the hands-on experience of creating your own works of glass, you can learn by playing and also enjoy shopping while having fun.
You can enjoy the experience of glass in a variety of ways--you can view rare and priceless works of glass artwork, both ancient and modern, in the museums; you can experience first hand many different types of glass making at the Glass Workshop; you can enjoy shopping at the gift shop, which is stocked with glass products from around the world.
There is also a restaurant within the grounds, so you can relax and enjoy a nice, relaxing time here.
