Washi craftsmen and wagasa umbrella craftsmen work hard every day to preserve and pass on to future generations the traditions and culture that have been handed down from generation to generation since ancient times in Japan. The combination of these two traditional crafts has resulted in a beautiful and genuine Kurodani Washi umbrella through a number of processes. We are pleased to offer you a superb product made by "Kyoto Kurotani Washi" and "Kyoto Wagasa shop Tsujikura".

Bangasa (Sturdy umbrella)
"Fubuki" (blowing snow) The black bark of kouzo and other trees, as well as the thick fiber bonds, are not removed, leaving the texture of the bark as in "fubuki". The raw materials are carefully selected and manufactured with the utmost care and quality. We hope you will feel the long story of how it is made.
