Tomita, Aomori City, Aomori Prefecture, is located in the western part of the Tsugaru Peninsula and has been a fishing area since ancient times. Hokuyo Glass was originally a glass factory that produced “ukidama (a type of floating ring used for the temporary retention of fishing boats and the installation of fixed nets)” for the fishing industry, and the various expressions in the current Tsugaru Bidoro stem from the technology cultivated in the ukidama-making.
