Ryukyu Glass Village has a working area where glass blowers make Okinawa glass items. It was fascinating to watch the process. They offer workshops in glass craft. And there are two shops, with a range of items, of course many lovely Okinawa glass items made...More

Generally this was a waste of time and appears to be a tourist trap. I assume there are other glass factories on the island and if recommend you find those instead. There was a better variety of glass for purchase at the airport.

This is the 2nd to the last itinerary of our tour - we were treated to the actual glass blowing skills of the masters. Very impressive to see how they create works of art!

At the Ryukyu Glass Village it is possible to see glassmaking in action right before your eyes. For those from big cities, this is definitely a unique experience that is normally only seen on television. You are even able to try glass blowing yourself! Additionally,...More

Great place to go without reservation to see glass blown and maybe get a chance to do some yourself.
