Glassmaking technique unchanged since ages is about to be forgotten with the times.
We want to keep protecting that beauty of “original” glass made by skilled craftsmen.
We gathered that feelings to make it happen.

Three attractive points

1.Material

If you want to enjoy the Taisho glass, first try to gaze intently at empty glass without pouring any liquid into it.
When you hold the glass up to the light, you can see the thick-layered parts brighten up with amber.
You will be surely impressed by the beauty of the glass as a material.
You can find the difference between Taisho glass and other glasses by the sound.
Try to tap it lightly with for example metal spoon, and you will hear highly clear sound, very pleasant for ears.
After gazing you will know that it is too good to just exhibit it. Pour your favorite drink and take your time in tasting it. You will be satisfied spending some luxurious time, different from usual.
