I left my foldable umbrella behind when we visited the Sanja Matsuri festival a couple of nights ago, so I picked up this transparent plastic umbrella from one of the many convenience stores. For me, the transparent umbrella was something ordinary, but Patrick was all excited to see one in person, for he’d seen them in anime shows but never in person. Here, the umbrella is resting under a gazebo of the Hamarikyu Garden. Tokyo, Japan.
