  • It is a corner where the building which feels the history of the black wall of the tree is lined up. The old private house is used as various shops, and it is really lively, and the atmosphere to be excited drifts. Especially, the shop of the glasswork is the main, and it becomes nailed to various souvenirs such as accessories of the glassware which glitters. However, this is not a famous place for glasswork for a long time, and after thinking about what is good for the city entertainment, it is said that it came to glasswork, and it is remarkable for the success. You can feel the passion of the local people who want to make the world aware of the wonders of the black-walled cityscape. It's a wonderful place that i can't believe it used to be a shutter town!

  •  There were a lot of glass crafts and a cute accessory was a little different, and I bought a bird brooch for myself. I bought it as a souvenir to the family, too, and it was delicious.
