Sengan-en - Kiriko crystal cutting experience

Try cutting Satsuma Kiriko, a traditional glass craft

"Satsuma Kiriko" is a traditional craft that reflects light and sparkles brilliantly. Try your hand at kiriko cutting under the guidance of craftsmen, and experience the sophisticated skills needed to create this craft. 
You can choose from three types of glass - "Gold-red glass" characterized by a clear vividness known as "maboroshi no iro" ("phantom color"), "transparent class" characterized by the beautiful shine of crystal glass, and "key holder," which features a gradation.   
You can bring your cut glass work back with you, so you can also use it as a gift. (The "gold-red glass" will be posted at a later date.)
