  • The glass atelier (Ashitaba Glass-blowing Studio)

Important

Please note that It is not aways possible to join this activity even though the calendar shows it is available on the day. Confirm the schedule before booking.

About the activity:
You can create one or several glassworks at one time (glass, dish, fishbowl, wind-bell, accessory etc.)
It takes about 1 hour for 1-2 customers, and about 1.5-2 hours for 3-5 customers if making one glasswork for each.
Blowing-glass activity is available from small children(over 4 years old) to elderly supported by the owner.
Small children can have another kind of experience which is easier to make accessories or a paperweight without blowing glasses.
Activity fee : 2,800 yen to 3200 yen for a piece of work (1,200 yen for non-blowing experience)
Plus, shipping cost is required to send your works to your home or your hotel in Japan since your works cannot be handed on the day.
Please note that we do not take any responsibility for any damage or loss caused during shipping, though we package your works very carefully.

How to get to the atelier:
The guide will pick you up at the nearest station or the bus stop.
If you are already in Mt.Fuji area, take Fujikyu-ko Line train to Mitsutouge station.
In case of coming from Tokyo, I recommend you to take high-way bus from Shinjuku station and get off at Chuodo Nishikatsura. *It is called "Fuji-Goko(Five Lakes)/Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station Shinjuku" Line and costs 1,600 yen for adult, 800 yen for kids. read more
