Glass Kobo Gen

Make a one-of-a-kind in the world original piece in a glass blowing experience at Akiu Onsen!

Glass Kobo Gen is located at the entrance to Akiu Onsen. Even beginners can enjoy a glass blowing experience with ease, so why don't you try making an original piece? You will receive support with the difficult and dangerous tasks, so even children of about five years old can take part in this experience safely (although they must be accompanied by a guardian). 

You will choose one item you wish to make from glasses, small bowls, vases for one flower and plates. You will then choose and mix your favorite color from the approximately 20 available. This means selecting the color is also exciting. Blowing the hot glass is full of surprises and discoveries: ""It's fun!"" ""It's hot!"" ""The glass is soft."" You can enjoy an experience beyond your imagination.

You will need to make a reservation by the day before you wish to take the experience. The experience will last approximately 30 minutes on the day. Your piece will be given to you from the next day or shipped to you at a later date (postage not included).
