Glass House in the Forest

At the Glass House in the Forest in the northern city of Nago, you can watch professional glass artisans at work. You can even try your hand at glassblowing with the help of one of the artists.

To make your own bumpy glass item costs ¥2,310 and up.  The time required is 10~15 minutes per person and 60 minutes total, including waiting time. The items visitors make are delivered in the order of receipts of the day, but orders cannot be picked up on the same day due to the cooling process. Instead, they are ready for pickup two days later from 14:00 p.m. at the store. Visitors from outside of Okinawa can use a courier service.

Don't forget to take a look at the shop, which stocks over 200 types of colorful Ryukyu glassware created in the workshop, including awamori bottles, vases and tableware. The Glass House in the Forest is a 30-minute drive from the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium.
