Make your kimono attire more impressive with Japanese umbrellas practical both as an umbrella and parasol
Hiyoshiya has been a long-standing Japanese umbrella maker since the late Edo period (1600-1868) and now is the only Japanese umbrella maker in Kyoto. The shop provides their works to the Urasenke and Omotesenke schools of tea ceremony. The Japanese umbrella is truly the work of art amongst all the other umbrellas due to the beautiful texture of washi (Japanese paper) and decorative bone and thread structures. Sometimes lacquer and natural pigments are used to make various umbrellas with many designs. Mai-gasa has many printed designs, which creates a gorgeous appearance. It is light and also can be used as parasol. If you carry one, you can be sure it will give your kimono or yukata (summer cotton kimono) style a noticeably elegant touch.
