Hokuyo Glass

In 1949, Hokuyo Glass began as a company that produced floats for fishing, which were highly praised for their superior quality and eventually led to them becoming the preeminent float manufacturer of Japan. Subsequently, the company shifted to producing plastic floats, using the techniques of glass blowing previously acquired through the manufacturing of floats. Aomori's isolated location limits transportation, prompting the craftspeople to incorporate diverse raw materials, such as coloured glass, in-house. In 1977, they developed their signature moulding technique mixed with coloured glass and gave life to Tsugaru Vidro, tableware and flower vases inpired by the colours of the seasons. The craftspeople have dedicated themselves to technical development, consistently striving to create various coloured glass combinations and mastering skilful techniques.
