Every year in June at Matsuya Department Store the biggest umbrella show in Japan takes place. This year we displayed our latest collection at our booth beneath a great display of several hundred hanging umbrellas in Matsuya's main hall. I got a chance to meet a lot of interesting people and see their reaction to my designs. It was also interesting to see their reaction to my at times incomprehensible Japanese language skills. An annual event not to be missed by any umbrella connaisseur.
