The Glass Studio in Hakodate

Yoshiaki Tanaka

Dec 8, 2016

Interested in making your own unique glass piece? Hakodate is famous for glass craft, and tourists can experience glassblowing in a few factories! I personally think The Glass Studio has the best historical ambience among all the factories despite its size. Even if you’re a beginner to glassblowing, there’ll be friendly teachers around to guide you!

I created my own glass for around 1,800 yen. The shape of the glass changes depending on how you blow it. It’s an incredibly fun experience! Do note that the glass you make needs some time to cool down, so you can only collect it the next day.

吹きガラス体験でオリジナルのグラスを作ってみませんか?
実は、函館はガラス工芸が盛んな街で、観光客が吹きガラスを体験できる工房がいくつかあります。
その中でも、The Glass Studio in Hakodateは個人的に最もガラス工房の雰囲気が楽しめると思います。
小さいながらも本格的な工房で、レトロな雰囲気が素敵です。
初心者でも先生が丁寧に教えてくれるので安心して制作できます。ここで作るグラスですが吹き方によって微妙に形が変わるので、
自分だけのオリジナルなグラスを作ることができます。(1800円程度)
作ったガラスは冷めるまで時間がかかるため翌日にならないと引き取れません。
なので、旅行日程には注意してくださいね。
