Extensive Pearl manufacturing tours?

Are there any extensive pearl manufacturing factory tours available? Which includes cultivation, removing pearls from shell, sorting, colouring, manufacturing jewelry?

It is not large scale, but there is such a place.

However, English correspondence may not be done.

Mikimoto Pearl Island has museums and shops.

If you ask a tourist information office, you may be able to get information.

Toba for "Pearl Island" and the Alma divers, but as for "extensive", not really IMO - I am not sure you would get better than the informatoin and displays at Mikimoto, but it is pretty good.

Go to Kashikojima from Toba by Kintetsu line (train) and take a cruise for Ago bay which takes 50 minutes including 10 minutes for pearl manufacturing tour. You may have a chance to see cultivation and removing pearles from shell as a demonstration for tourists.
