Katsunuma Glass Workshop Garasuya

Main content starts here.

Area:Isawa/Katsunuma/Nishizawa Gorge

Katsunuma Glass Workshop Garasuya is a full-fledged studio where you can create your own original one-of-a-kind glassware. One must experience the "Free-blowing course" (small glass, from 2,700 yen). This course allows you to experience glass blowing. The glass quickly changes its form each time a breath is blown into the hot, melting glass. It looks like a living creature. The experience is filled with excitement because you cannot imagine what the finished product will look like until the last minute! We also offer the "Millefiori experience course" (2,500 yen) where flower-shaped glass rods are combined and heated to create pendants or key holders, and also the “Suncatcher experience course” (from 1,600 yen) where you select your favorite designed crystal beads for finishing. It's easy, even for beginners, and a lot of support is also provided. So don't be afraid to try it out. Please look forward to the eventual delivery of the finished glassware (additional charge for shipping). In the site, there is also the Shirayuri winery. You can enjoy wine shopping or pick grapes. Come and visit Katsunuma where there is much to see.
