  • From the selection of equipment to the practice, but the real thing It doesn't work out the basics. In the end, you can also do the rework, so even clumsy people should be able to make their own. First of all, it is an experience.

  • 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!
