Nasu Stained Glass Museum Tours and Activities

Nasu Stained Glass Museum
At the Nasu Stained Glass Museum, you’d be forgiven for thinking you had left Japan and entered the English Cotswolds. Designed to look like an English manor, the building is home to antique works of stained glass art, as well as a pipe organ. Art and antiques enthusiasts will enjoy visiting the museum on a day trip from Tokyo.

The Basics

At the museum, wander around admiring European and American-style stained glass windows while listening to pipe organ music. Look out for the biblical stories depicted in some of the windows. Highlights are the Tiffany windows made by the famous New York glass studio, the Richard Lee–inspired glass lamps, and the well-manicured English-style gardens surrounding the museum. When you need a break, sit down for English tea (or a full meal) at the on-site café.

To save time at the entrance, book your admission ticket online in advance.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The museum often hosts special events such as candlelit evenings, choir performances, and fairs celebrating holidays—look online to see what’s happening.
  • Visitors can arrange to hold their wedding, or even a surprise marriage proposal, at the museum.

How to Get There

Located in Nasu, in Tochigi Prefecture, the Nasu Stained Glass Museum is about a 2-hour drive north from Tokyo. The train is the most convenient option for many travelers. Take the high-speed Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Nasushiobara, then catch a local train or bus the rest of the way, via Kuroiso.

When to Get There

The museum is open every day, with slightly reduced hours in winter. Go on a weekend for the chance to see a concert in the St. Gabriel Chapel section of the museum.

Visit Shiobara Onsen
Take the opportunity to relax and unwind from city life, and spend a night or two in Shiobara Onsen, a popular hot-springs town not far from the Nasu Stained Glass Museum. Stay in a traditional inn to make the most of your experience, and soak in natural baths while surrounded by nature.
