The image of the 1st floor is library. There are many umbrellas in a wooden shelfs. For example, “poke flat” is thinness 2.5 cm, so you carry it in your bag easily. There is the design made by Japanese too.
There is another type of umbrella, looking like a pen. This name is “penboso” that means fine-tipped pen. It is only 3.5cm in diameter.
These umbrellas look like animals. There are pandas, frogs, bears etc. If you buy the one, it’s that goes well with the interior of the room.
The 2nd floor is umbrellas for men. You can feel adventurous atmosphere because they look strong. There are shot umbrellas and long umbrellas. If you go to mountains, it is good to bring it for you!
