Asakusa Glass Beads Studio浅草とんぼ玉工房


This workshop specializes in glass beads in a Japanese tradition going back to the Nara period. They make everything from plain glass beads to ornate flower/animal shapes. The products of their most skilled artisans, in particular, become ornate, intricate sculptures like firebirds or goldfish. They also offer a bead-making class where you can try making your own, as well as chances to make your own earrings or necklaces. The classes are reservation only (by noon the day before).

          Tokyo Main Areas


          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
