Story & Recommendation
Purveyor to the Japanese Imperial Household Agency, selling brilliant traditional wagasa umbrellas favored by maiko
This traditional Japanese umbrella shop is located near Yasaka Shrine. Traditional umbrellas were loved by the maiko because of how well they complemented the maikos’ kimonos. With their brilliant variety of colors and patterns, traditional umbrellas are also popular with international tourists. If you like, you can buy a traditional umbrella, then rent a kimono to go with it, and although most traditional umbrellas are relatively large and expensive, you can also find calming, cute, little ones for sale. The shop is tiny, holding only five or six people. Since there is only ever one or two members of staff available, you will probably be best off deciding what you want and what to ask the shop assistant before entering the shop.
