The sky looks like a white veil of misty light clouds, or the spray of waves, or a starry sky, it seems as if beautiful scenes of nature come to mind when you look at it.
The indigo dye gives the impression of dark shades, but these gentle, transparent, light shades are also beautiful.
The handle is made of high quality bamboo, which is light and smooth to the touch.
Wagasa umbrellas cannot be made from scratch by a single craftsman.
This Wagasa was made by the hands of many craftsmen, each with their own hard work, ingenuity, and thoughtfulness, and the beauty that the existence itself radiates seems to express this.

All Gifu Japanese umbrellas are carefully made one by one by the hands of craftsmen.
It takes over two months to make one Japanese umbrella.
Japanese umbrellas, which are said to be ``open as flowers, closed as bamboo'', are traditional Japanese crafts that are filled with the skill of craftsmen and attention to detail.
Each Japanese umbrella is created through numerous production processes that last over two months.
The thoughtfulness of craftsmen and traditional techniques create delicate beauty.
The framework of a Japanese umbrella is made from a piece of bamboo that is split evenly and assembled so that when the umbrella is folded, it returns to its original shape.
The moment you open it, the colors of the Japanese paper and the delicate threads create a beautiful shadow that surrounds the person holding it.
All of these are the only Japanese umbrellas in the world, created through the painstaking work of craftsmen.
