Small Japanese Umbrella for Interior
Experience Kyoto's tradition of umbrellas in the modern day. Hiyoshiya is the only Kyoto umbrella manufacturer to preserve the traditions of classical Edo Japan; a tradition spanning five generations. Japanese umbrellas are not only used as umbrellas. Nowadays, many of them are used as interior displays to add Japanese taste to the room.
Hiyoshiya's umbrellas are made with the finest quality materials, collected from all over Japan. Different qualities of washi paper are used to suit the specific feeling and style of each kind of umbrella (from Fukui, Gifu and Toyama prefecture). We use the finest bamboo obtained from special groves in Gifu Prefecture or Kyoto City. Additionally, the decorative aspects of our umbrellas make use of a number of traditional Kyoto craft forms including lacquer, braiding, and fine metal work.
