Whilst we were in Hakone we also did a glass blowing workshop where you could make drinking glasses and vases and beakers and suchlike. Me and Jessica both made glasses which was rather fun. Jessica's mother can just be seen in the background peeping into shot… It's an odd sort of activity I suppose, but interesting to see how it all works. Glass is incredible stuff… Jessica doing some glass blowing. Jessica, and her mother, Takako.
