Ryukyu glass is specifically unique to Okinawa because of the way in which the art developed. Craftsmen found the broken glass bottles left behind by United States soldiers, and recycled them into art, jewelry and household items. Whereas bubbles in glass are usually seen as a flaw, Okinawan glassblowers incorporated them into their designs. With the aid of the craftsmen at Onna Glass Studio, you can create a piece of jewelry or a glass cup to take home as a keepsake. The studio also provides free transportation to hotels around the Onna area.
