Umbrellas have long been a feature in the daily life of Japan, and in its mirror, Japanese art. Oil-paper umbrellas were a variety invented in China which spread to many neighboring countries. No one knows exactly when umbrellas were invented, but it's thought they came to Japan via Korea during the Asuka period (538-710). At first umbrellas were such a luxury item that they also had spiritual significance. But over the centuries some changes were made, and by the Edo period umbrellas were much more common. Still, a lot of craft went into making umbrellas. Being a common feature of everyday life, and an aesthetically pleasing one at that, umbrellas can be seen in many woodblock prints (https://www.tofugu.com/japan/umbrellas-in-japan/)

Slide1:

JAPAN Rain, Snow & Art

Slide2:

Seasons are a main theme in the Japanese culture. Tsuyu (literally "plum rain," since plums ripen during this time) brings the water needed to flood rice fields. As such, the Japanese consider the coming of tsuyu vitally important to the well-being of the country, and traditionally have conducted rain-making rituals (amagoi) that include prayers, religious offerings to the gods, and special dances

Slide3:

The importance of rain to Japan's pre-modern agricultural society resulted in a rich poetic lexicon of rain-related vocabulary: harusame, the soft rain of spring; haku'u, the "white rain" of a sudden shower; yñdachi, an evening downpour; kirisame, misty rain; shigure, the cold rain of late autumn or winter; and so on. From the mid-19th century, landscape print artists attempted to capture these sentiments in their compositions, and developed a variety of specialized techniques for depicting different types of rain Asano Takeji (1900-1999) Rain in Higashi-Honganji Temple, Kyoto Takahashi Shotei (1871 - 1945) Village with Japanese yellow rose 1916
