Cute wind chimes like soap bubbles and beautiful transparent glass


Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore resumed operations on May 29th, but Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore will continue to strengthen its online proposal for “living with art.” From May 5th June, “Enjoy the summer night sky in a cool way: wind chimes and vessels” at our online shop.

Online fair overview

Before the influence of coronavirus, there were events in the country where you can enjoy summer vessels, Tanabata festivals, etc. in the summer, but many events were canceled this year, and it’s always exciting to welcome the summer. Are you feeling a little disappointed, though? By all means, this summer is expected to be longer at home than usual.
At Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore, we would like to introduce “Items that you can spend at home for a long time this summer” with a different taste, and this time as an online fair, “Enjoy the cool summer night sky” : Wind chimes and vessels” will be held.

A glass made to taste cold beer deliciously.
A sake cup set that allows you to enjoy a comparison of cold sake from the difference in the mouth of the glass.
A wind chime that looks like floating soap bubbles.

All of these items can instantly transform your hot summer time into a luxurious time.
You will surely find a perfect gift for yourself or as a gift for Father’s Day.

Brand introduction

This is an original brand from Koda Oda Co., Ltd., which has been manufacturing and selling castings in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture, which is Japan’s casting industry. “RED&WHITE” is made by lacquering a crimson body with a silver tin. The material’s body has excellent thermal conductivity and cold insulation, and when a cold drink is poured, it will fall to the same temperature as the drink and remain cool until the end.

[Kimoto glass]
We produce all of the glass with the spirit of craftsmanship. Taking advantage of the experience of a wholesaler cultivated for more than 80 years, we are proposing a new world of glass products in collaboration with the handmade glass factory in Tokyo downtown, Edo Kiriko craftsmen, designers and creators.

[Sghr Sugahara]
“Sghr Sugahara,” which has its own workshop in Kujukuri Town, Chiba Prefecture, is particular about handmade products in order to deliver glass products that add color to life. The iridescent wind chime has a soap bubble motif, and it looks as if the soap bubbles are floating in the sky.

[Tohoku Craft Co., Ltd.]
Tamamushi-nuri, a traditional craft of Miyagi prefecture, is characterized by its beautiful colors. I layered this tamamushi coat on the colorful Yugen glass made by blowing one by one. With this wind chime, you can feel the season with your eyes and ears, with a combination of pure tones and shades.

[Noguchi glass]
Shinsuke Nobe is a member of FUSION FACTORY Glass Factory, a glass workshop in Fujisawa City, Kanagawa Prefecture. It is made by blowing glass using 1,200c of molten glass. FUSION means fusion and melting. We are creating new works that combine glass, space, and human thoughts.

[Kimiko Yasuda]
Active as an artist of Osaka Kiriko. We are developing Kiriko that shows patterns when water is poured and you can enjoy gentle gradation of colors. Please enjoy works whose expressions change one by one.
