When I have an umbrella in my hand after the rain, I really want to swing it around like a sword. I think this is because a lot of the Japanese boys used to play with their umbrellas as a sword when they were kids. This product captures that excitement!

The handle is like the handle of a samurai sword.

The bag for the umbrella has a shoulder strap so you can carry it like a samurai.

When the umbrella is wet, it shows 28 different family emblems of feudal warlords

  • I get a tingling feeling.
  • I’m to shy to use it in real life…
