World Glassware Hall

Enjoy a fun and glittering world just by looking at the glassware!

The World Glassware Hall is Japan's largest dedicated glassware gallery. The hall collects handmade glassware products from all over the world. It simultaneously exhibits up to 25,000 carefully selected items - from pieces directly imported from around the world to original products. The numerous glassware products on display create a mysterious and beautiful space.

The grounds are home to an experience workshop. This is in addition to the Inawashiro Local Beer Hall where you can enjoy the Inawashiro local beer that has won the international beer awards grand prize and the Inawashiro Okashi Hall that brings together famous local confectionaries and sweets.

You can experience making glass beads, etching glass to engrave original patterns and blown glass in the experience workshop. If you wish to do so, we recommend you make an advance reservation by telephone. Please note that this is not possible with clothes that expose your legs and sandals.
