Though the traditional cut glass was regarded as an old‐fashioned thing one time, the craftsmen cooperated with the designers and have created the newly designed products. The Edo-kiriko with the appearance of Mt. Fuji is one of those. 

Curious to say, the beautiful and symbolic mountain hadn’t shown up the world of the Edo glass. The combination of the traditional Edo glass and Mt. Fuji created the wonderful Japanese glassware as never before. I would like to introduce the Mt. Fuji Edo  glass products from
