Stained Glass Inspired Umbrella Casts A Colorful Shadow

Because nothing makes me want to sing in the rain more than an umbrella to keep me dry (otherwise I’ll typically run as fast as I can through the rain), this is the $37 Stained Glass Umbrella available from the Japan Trend Shop. It’s the perfect umbrella for carrying a rainbow with you.

In addition to drawing inspiration from the early 20th-century stained glass designs seen around Japan during the rule of emperors Meiji and Taisho, the Stained Glass Umbrella also draws on the vinyl/see-through umbrella motif that “has been a trademark of any Japanese townscape since the 1950s.” I can already close my eyes and see majestic Mount Fuji rising in the distance.

Of course, the biggest problem with a stained glass umbrella is that if it is raining, it probably isn’t bright enough outside to cast its beautiful shadow. Still, it will keep you from getting wet, which, the last time I checked, is the purpose of carrying an umbrella anyways. Well, that, and pretending you’re Inigo Montoya and just ran into the six-fingered man.
