    "This blown glass studio and adjoining gallery is located in Miyama, an area known for its Satsuma porcelain, three minutes from the Miyama Interchange on the Minamikyushu Expressway via Prefectural Route 24. Sunlight floods into the gallery space via its large windows, and inside are displayed a variety of items created by artisan Eriko Ide. The gallery's most popular product is the ""lace glass"" paperweights, which consist of dainty lace encased in transparent glass. The gallery also sells everyday glasses and plates, as well as smaller items such as chopstick rests perfect for giving as a little souvenir. Depending on the time of year, the facility also offers studio tours."

Kagoshima Areas


Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
