Arita Porcelain Scopes Are Dream Works of Art.
Kaleidoscopes are magic tools that can impress and entertain everyone in the world. The world that opens up beyond the small eyehole of a kaleidoscope is like a microcosm where thousands of flowers bloom.

The kaleidoscopes created in collaboration with Arita porcelain artisans are dream works of art.

It would make me happy if these kaleidoscopes could impress people or inspire their dreams.
