The Japanese truly love Mount Fuji and try to fit its shape into as many different objects as possible. Just do a quick search here at Japan Trend Shop and you will find dozens of Fuji-shaped items! The Mount Fuji Umbrella Stand is one such product but it is much more than just a novelty: replicating the iconic volcano's perfectly conical shape means this nifty stand can accommodate five umbrellas without being too bulky. Which makes it ideal if you live in slightly cramped conditions like those in Tokyo where space is always a premium.
The Mount Fuji Umbrella Stand comes in four colors: gray, yellow, pink, and red. The choice of red is not random, since the motif of "Red Fuji" also features in one of the most famous ukiyoe woodblock prints by Katsushika Hokusai, dating back in the mid-1800s. Pick the color that best fits your home and add a compact, bamboo melamine Mount Fuji to your life: it will be practical when it rains and decorative when it doesn't!
