Akihabara is Tokyo’s “Electric Town”, located on the eastern side of the central Chiyoda ward. The area houses thousands of shops selling every technological gadget you can imagine, from computers to gaming consoles and vacuums to DVDs. This area is also known as the “Gamer’s Mecca” and has in recent times become strongly identified with anime & manga subculture, with the legions of otaku geeks traipsing down on weekends known as Akiba-kei. Here at Akihaboro we have the same nerd-ish obsession for Borosilicate glass art. With a strong focus on bringing the Japan’s finest artisans right to your screen, and hopefully to your home as well. With an average of about 5,000 glass artisans living and working in Japan the movement is still small, yet through the traditional rigid Japanese standards of quality and precision the demand for these works has skyrocketed. Glass aficionado and layman alike this new artistic medium transcends all demographics and social classes, we invite you to view our fine selection of glass art.
