The Japanese umbrella and the process behind its making is considered an art form. Only natural materials are used to manufacture Japanese paper umbrellas and each one requires months of preparation due to being prepared solely by skilled hands. Over a dozen separate craftsmen are involved in the making of just one Wagasa including woodworkers, artists, and paper specialists.
