Plenty of glassware to choose from, price is reasonable, packaging was very good. We bought a couple of cups which can change color when pouring hot water

I could spend quite long time to look around. so cute and wonderful goods are all over and I could not walk away without purchase. I loved many small lamps however, I couldn't buy any of them because the electric socket is different from Korea. But still regret not to buy little fox lamp, bear lamp, cat lamp, and owl... More

Place selling according to Japan voltage, so you will be required to buy your own transformers. We bought few pieces, the workmanship is good and worth the money. Even you are not interested to purchase, the place is worth to be on ur list. Free parking coupons if you buy from them. Parking space is kinds small.

it's a museum/shop where you can see (for free) all the glass musical boxes. There are 3 floors to look around. All of the things on display are for sale as noted by their price tags (and they're quite expensive). Definitely unique, as I have yet to see these kinds of things anywhere else in Japan.

Must go visit these shops. Otaru is famous in glassware and in these shops you see them all. The price range is from a few thousand yen to a lot more expensive. Those sake and shoujiu glass bottles were just pieces of art.

I think I've found heaven.... most beautiful collection of glassware since my trip to Venice 2 years ago -- in fact, Otaru and Venice are very much linked together -- there is a Venetian store and museum there as well. I will say that the only negative was that they do not ship to the USA so whatever you get... More
