    Good Family Fun
    Fantastic activity for the family and kids to enjoy. Great hour spent making ourselves and our loved ones something special. The little charms all have special meaning which you can connect too. Definitely will recommend.

    A fun midday activity
    This was an absolutely wonderful experience. I've made beads once before, but this was much more guided, so the beads came out perfect. I made a pair of earrings, which I absolutely love. From beginning to end, it was a fantastic experience and I definitely recommend it.

    Worth the walk up the hill
    Worth the walk up the hill from Gora station. Don’t go straight to the cable car, instead go out of the station & walk up the hill to Gora Park. The glass head house is beautiful & the staff kind & helpful. I made earrings & it was a lovely relaxing experience plus I got a unique souvenir at the end.

    Fun morning inside Gora Park
    What a fun experience! Teens n 7n up enjoyed making their own glass beads. They are patient with us during the process. It’s a relatively easy to follow experience. There are also many accessory choices to choose from. We made key chain n necklaces. Highly recommended.

    Fun glass blowing experience
    My partner and I had a great time doing the glass blowing experience. It took about 30 minutes for both of us to make a mug and you didn't need any prior experience. A lovely thing to do on a rainy day and they will ship your finished items to your hotel about 4 or 5 days later.

    Craft House Great house
    Had a great time! Well worth a visit. We did both pottery and glass blowing and we really enjoyed it. Would be great for families or couples. You get to keep what you make but they need to post it to you afterwards so try and do it early in your trip so that it arrives at the end of your trip at the hotel you selected.

    Beading fun
    Very fun experience making beaded accessories! Staff is very friendly and the beads are beautiful! We didn't have time to make our own beads but the choice of pre-made beads to chose from was amazing and so cute! Admission to Gora Park was free with the Hakone Free Pass.

It was a fun experience to do as a couple to create a memory of your trip! Reasonably priced and a nice stop off whilst looking around Gora Park.
