Unique Glass and Building Itself
Sep 2019
As you can see, the building is very unique. They also have shop building which remind you of spacecraft but unfortunately the shop is closed by now. I think it would be better if they have shop or you can experience glass making here. You can enjoy various glass exhibition. I visited when there was a exhibition from an artist which make flowery glass. Recommended to visit. They also have a big glass where you can see outside. It looks like an usual wall but when you stand on the certain area, it will become clear and you can see outside. Better to visit when it is sunny outside.

Imaginative Museum
May 2019 • Couples
We enjoyed our visit to the glass art museum, but wonder why no photography was allowed. The exhibits are beautiful, the museum is well-laid out, and the air conditioning worked well.

Interesting building, workshop
Jul 2018 • Family
The building in which the collection is housed is as interesting as the glass displayed. The visit is not complete until you visit the glass workshop across the street and see the artisans creating glass items (or sign up to create something yourself). Don't miss ordering a sashimi bowl at the shop...it was as good as what we got at the fish market in Tokyo!

Beautiful art in a funky building but challenging for non-Japanese
Jul 2018 • Family
The location and the driveway leading to it is beautiful. Th museum itself is located in a unique, space-like complex that is an art form on its own. The exhibition on the basement floor is particularly interesting.

But as in many other Japanese museums - tickets are overpriced at 800yen pp while no photos are allowed (To sell the exhibition brochure at the end!?) and little to no explanations in English.

Experience

We also visited the downstairs glass factory where we could go in and took lots of pictures. The concentration of the 4 staffs were amazing. A lesson of light, zen, beauty. Loved it.
