Kurokabe Square, Nagahama
(3.5/5 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 still shop there fun walking around town while I was filled with shopping. So there is not a lot but not to participate in workshops, such as 2, 3 hours you can enjoy fully what it is.
