Tajima Glass is known as both the manufacturer of Edo glass and the studio of Edo Kiriko. Founded in 1956. Having many craftsmen, he has continued to make various glass products. In the era of mass production, we continue to stick to handmade glass made by craftsmen one by one, and continue to polish the spirit of further evolving the inherited traditional techniques together with glass.

Edo Glass / Edo Kiriko Technology

Nihon Kogeido / Tajima Glass Black cover glass, incredibly thin glass, Edo glass and Edo Kiriko Collaboration of traditional techniques. Tajima Glass has always taken on innovative challenges and has made more than 10,000 products. One of the reasons why the name of Tajima Glass became known to the world was that Mt. Fuji was registered as a World Cultural Heritage Site.
A glass shaped like Mt. Fuji was made to commemorate the registration as a World Cultural Heritage site. The dent of the Hoei crater, which is one of the characteristics of Mt. Fuji, was realistically decorated there. In addition, we are now developing products that are required as souvenirs by foreigners, such as Mt. Fuji congratulatory glass that expresses the snowy landscape of Mt. Fuji by sandblasting on the cover glass, and Mt. Fuji glass that makes Mt. Fuji appear on the bottom when you pour a drink. I did.
"This is the result of combining the technologies we have cultivated so far, and further devising and developing technologies," says the president of Tajima Glass. I feel the strength of those words because they are involved in traditional crafts that have evolved and passed down by constantly trying to transcend the past and present. What kind of glass world will surprise us next?

Buyer's Voice

Craftsmanship is
creating a gem that is loved across time and culture

I am proud that the craftsmen sometimes know that they are more innovative than those who are involved in any manufacturing site, from the experience of talking with many craftsmen. Not only did they have a deep knowledge of traditional techniques, but they also learned the latest techniques and the sensibilities of modern times, and were thinking about how to coexist with tradition.

Tajima Glass craftsmen are not just focusing on inheriting the technology. We are constantly trying to develop new technologies so that our technology is the best now and in the future than in the past. I think that the passion there is the secret to making traditional crafts shine, timeless, and transcendental, making them think "beautiful" and "wonderful."
