UNIQUE CRAFTS OF TOYAMA
In Toyama, glass medicine bottle manufacturing boomed as a peripheral business of medicine industry before the war. Because of such special historical background, "glass" has become one of the city's development themes. Top-level glass facilities such as Toyama Glass Studio, Toyama City Institute of Glass Art, Toyama Glass Art Museum and etc. are all located in Toyama. Toyama has been attracted attention as a place where glass artists gather from domestic and overseas. Extensive works of glass art by local artists are displayed and sold in Toyama Glass Studio. Moreover, visitors can try out glass making here under the guidance of glass workers.
