The Matsuya Ginza 100 Umbrella Show

Every year Ginza Department store Matsuya has Japan's biggest umbrella show. It's called the The "100 Umbrella Show" 松屋銀座百傘会. There's nothing like it outside of Japan. The department store even hands hundreds of umbrellas in the air over the exhibition space in a special installation. A must see umbrella event.

Cocca Umbrella Collaboration

Cocca is a really charming shop in Daikanyama that makes their own fabric for use in clothing, accessories, interior good and numerous other items. The uniqueness of the designs and the quality of the fabric makes for really great items. That's what excited me about working with the poeple at Cocca on a series of Rhythm umbrellas. Here's a shot of the items in the Cocca showroom.
