(3.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
At Kurokabe Square, you'll find a variety of traditional buildings offering various distinct and well-crafted glassware. The city is renowned for its history of glass production, and around this small district, you'll find anything from high-end wares costing tens of thousands of yen, to something a little more wallet-friendly. At the reputable vendor "Kurokabe Glass," you can absorb a few floors worth of glass, including bowls, drinks receptacles, and ornamental animals, as well as taking the opportunity to learn some skills at daily glass-blowing workshops. Kurokabe Square is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Nagahama Edition.

  • I went to the Sunday of January. Cold towels, many tourists could and could not look at the various shops around. Ideal for journeys of about 3 hours, including meals.

  • It is 100 years, let alone from 1000 years ago, where people coming and going. Served as a servant of Nobunaga to withdraw people carrying salt and fish caught in the Wakasa Bay, who carries the Kaga Yuzen, tokichiro Kinoshita, Sasaki Kojiro from the Echizen aiming at Kyoto walking, walk young priests aiming at Eiheiji today, I was walking. It is a city I feel that way.
