Thank you to Photo Bento for this wonderfully colourful post on the Glass Village in Japan…

Garasu no Sato or Glass Village is one of the interesting tourist attrractions of Hiroshima City.  The village can be reached by 60-minute bus ride from Hiroshima station to Shimo-Oobayashi.  Visitors can enjoy the beautiful glass artworks displayed in the Beads Museum and Glass Museum; be enchanted by the Glass Castle; or have a hands-on experience in creating glassworks .

In this post, I will feature some of the fascinating beads artwork displayed in the Beads Museum.  Also in display are some of the traditional costumes and designs from around the world made from beads.
