This places has multiple levels of glass shops in one building. All of the items are gorgeous, of course. You cannot take photos, which I really wanted to do. They had glass dollhouses - one Japanese style, one huge Victorian style - which are worth going in to see! We had a hard time narrowing down what to buy! They... More

Plenty of glassware choices, this place is probably the main retail glassware collection in Otaru. Got myself a few glasses that changes colour according to water temperature (pretty cool! :D)..glasses were even decorated with snowy winter or flowering summer landscape!

Kitaichi is the primary glassware shop in Otaru. They sell everything from cups, little ornaments, decorations, and just anything you can think of made of glass

Nice souvenir - temperature changing cup (complete w scenic views unique to Otaru). There is a man that will demonstrate to you how it changes colour in hot and/or cold water. My kids bought one each. Not expensive. Amazing service and packaging. We were quite awed with the simple act of covering the paperback with plastic (so that the snow... More

This well-preserved and maintained building now houses a glass store and a restaurant that is lit with only kerosene lamps. It's conveniently close to a parking area where you can get free parking...

Well display of handmade glasswork.Do drop by their cafe for the reknown big cream puff and milk tea. The decoration of the cafe is quite cosy though it was dark.

This particular shop has a larger web presence, but there actually are numerous little shops along these streets. I really liked Kitaichi, though. They had great glass dishes and decorations. I'd buy something again just to watch them wrap it!

This attraction was mostly a very large glassware shop selling all sorts of glassware, from lamp to jewellery. There is a small glass blowing workshop across the road where visitors can watch the artisans at work, but the workshop would fit perhaps 10 people at most, while the retail shop took up at least 3 units. There were 2 cafes... More
