Recommendations for this Plan

Japanese umbrella

Wagasa includes "matsuri kasa", "nodate kasa", "janome kasa", "bangasa", and "parasol". Wagasa is also used in festivals and other Shinto rituals because "God dwells in the umbrella." In particular, Nakatsu City holds the Tsuruichi Hanakasaboko Matsuri, a traditional event that has continued for 860 years, every August.

Wagasa Workshop "Shu-Natsu" (Japanese umbrella)

Wagasa umbrella making is a traditional craft in the castle town of Nakatsu and has been added to Oita Prefecture's "One Village, One Product" list. However, the lack of successors due to the aging of craftsmen has driven the industry out of business, and out of concern for this situation, the "Wagasa Workshop Shu-Natsu" was established.
