Ryukyu Glass Village

Ryukyu Glass Village has the largest Ryukyu glass workshop on the island. A gallery, hands-on workshops and an outlet shop are situated on the premises, and numerous glassworks are exhibited for purchase. In summer, even the coolest place in the workshop, farthest from the 1,300°C kiln, reaches 40°C. Ryukyu glassware pieces are produced every day with great care by experienced glass artisans in the highly charged atmosphere. The glass-making workshop starts at ¥1,620. (Reservations for glass making required at least two days in advance.) A restaurant that offers local dishes such as taco rice and Okinawa soba is also located at the village.
