Hands-on satisfaction

Tokyo Glass  originated in Edo, as Tokyo used to be called, when Western-style glass manufacturing technology was introduced in the early Meiji period. Tokyo glass is carefully processed by the craftsmen, who pull the melted glass from furnaces using rods and other tools to manipulate its shape. Its brilliant sparkle comes from the transformation of natural quartz sand, finally polished using paulownia tree. Try your hand at making a soy sauce dispenser, essential to Japanese tableware, in the Edo Glass style.
