Ken Studio and Light Gallery  

Kenji Murakami and Kiyoko Tsuboi opened this shop in November of 2002. In addition to Ms. Tsuboi's handmade stained glass lamps and panels, they offer a selection of other fine crafts, such as accessories and dishes. This noren was designed by the shopkeeper who wants her shop to bloom like the big flower waving in the breeze.Their second store near Kanba Falls deals mostly in Mr. Murakami's lamps made from traditional Japanese paper and kazura vines. Both are places of warm, colorful light.
