About the Japanese Umbrella

Japanese Umbrella is made of Japanese papers.
But you can use this umbrella even on rainy days!
Because it is anoint repeatedly oil on papers.
And therefore, it is a very strong smell of oil. Whenever opening it and ventilating, it smells soft.

Japanese umbrella has a characteristic that whenever we use it, a part of white background will change color to light brown.
The oil is oxidized as time goes by.
That’s why we have to oil on the papers again.

When finished using on rain day, please wipe the water with a dry cloth and keep opening this umbrella while drying in the shade. By doing so, you can use it more.

Do you know how different is between Janome-gasa from Ban-gasa?

Ban-gasa’s frames are thick like a soul of Samurai who are
"Shitsu-Jitsu-Gou-Ken (this mean is simplicity, strong both physically and mentally)".
On the other hand, Janome-gasa is delicate like a woman from old times in Japan.
In general, Ban-gasa is mainly used by men because the weight is heavy.
And then women prefer Janome-gasa relatively lightweight to the former one.
Both of these have used as the umbrellas for rain.

What's Ban-Yakko?

It is a practical umbrella that is put the Japanese paper on with the framework of thick bamboo painting oil.

"Ban-Yakko" is dyed an edges of "Ban-gasa" navy blue. So structure is same as Bangasa.

It is a little similar to Janomegasa, Unlike Janomegasa, "Ban-yakko" is dyed a sheet of paper.
Janomegasa is patching the paper of a different color.

These days, Ban-Yakko( Ban-gasa ) is used along with the kimono as the rental on at a luxury hotel. All most of men primarily love it.
The umbrella’s frames are thicker and heavier then Janome-gasa and other umbrellas.

The frames and handle are so strong, and so is paper. The grip is made of bamboo. You can use it practically!

Anyway, please use the umbrella when you go outside with kimono!
