Hiyoshiya is one of the last remaining Kyoto style Wagasa (Japanese umbrella) family. They dedicate their life to keep the tradition of hand-making each Wagasa.
Hiyoshiya is also the pioneer in adapting contemporary design. They developed modern lighting products using the same design of Wagasa, and their products are now sought after by many hotels and cafes in Japan and overseas.
Shimane: Hidden treasure of Japan
Located on the western tip of Japan's main island, Shimane Prefecture is far away from the buzz and life of Tokyo and other big cities. In Shimane, traditional culture is still embedded in people's daily life, and the spirit is being continued by a group of craftsman from Izumono, local communities, historical places and traditional businesses. We wish you can experience this unique culture experience with the people of Shimane, Japan.
