A scene of Japanese umbrellas drying. Japanese umbrellas were made by pasting Japanese paper on bamboo skeletons, coloring it and drawing designs and letters, and covering the surface with oil. These included janome (bull's eye design), bangasa (coarse oil-painted umbrella), daikokugasa etc. Demand was strong, as was the demand for repapering. and so there were at least one or more umbrella shops in each neighborhood.
