The company began as a manufacturer of laboratory glassware and expanded their production to household items in 1948, starting with the coffee syphon. Their V60 coffee dripper is recognized and beloved by baristas around the world.
The experience is a private workshop organized only for you before the HARIO café opened from 11am. The tour is designed to extend two more hours to explore the area of Nihonbashi after the workshop for a half-day (4 hours), or you can spend the rest of your day with your guide for a full day (8 hours).
