  • Edo Kiriko dates back to 1836 and was recognized as a traditional Tokyo craft in 1985. Using clear or colored glass, artisans sketch a design and use a grinder to cut intricate patterns (including flowers, leaves, bamboo woven baskets, and more modern interpretations). In this one-hour workshop at Sokichi in Asakusa, you’ll have the chance to learn how Edo Kiriko is created. You start with practicing on a sample glass, then choose and sketch your design and cut your design. At the end, you’ll have a chance to photograph your finished masterpiece. Instruction and guidance was given in English and Japanese. Outstanding opportunity to experience a traditional craft and a unique souvenir of your time in Japan, highly recommended!!
  • It is nice to be able to try out Edo kiriko (Japanese Edo period glass cutting) firsthand. The instructor is patient and helpful. You get to practice your cuts before picking a design to follow. After an hour, you grow to appreciate the skills of these artisans even more. Be sure to take a look at the Kiku (chrysanthemum flower) Kagome pattern!
