The Japanese boast about their country's four district seasons but the truth is that there is only one season in Japan: the rainy season! Yes, the official rainy season, what other southeastern Asian countries call monsoon is in early summer, but in Japan hardly a week goes by without even at least a light shower. An umbrella, therefore, is the ultimate Japanese accessory and if you want one that doesn't allow any room for doubt on your cultural affiliations, the Samurai Warlord Umbrellas series is for you, combining the functionality of a sturdy Japanese umbrella with the colors of some of Japan's most prominent historical figures.
The crests and family colors of warlords Sanada Yukimura, Oda Nobunaga, Date Masamune, and Maeda Keijiro are featured on the Samurai Warlord Umbrellas. Choose the one you like based on your favorite warrior from the Warring States (1467-1600) or just based on your taste in colors and patters, and sling it on your back in its special carry bag. And when the rain comes, unsheathe it (the handle is even designed as a katana sword for extra authenticity) and defend yourself from the rain like a true samurai!
