Pokemon? No, Kasapon!

In Japan, it's rainy season now.  Rain, rain, rain...every day!

When it's raining we use umbrella or raincoat, but it’s annoying to carry extra luggage.  Therefore, most people prefer to go out on fine days. 

However, there are some interesting things only available on rainy days.  Take a look at these videos.


1. "Kasapon", not Pokemon


This is call "Kasapon".  It's not a friend of Pikachu in Pokemon world.

This is a great Japanese invention.  You can put on an umbrella bag without getting your hands wet.  It also helps to prevent the floor get wet and slippery.  It's very common scenery in Japan.  Usually it installed at the entrance of facilities, such as shops and hotels.  I took this vidio in front of a shopping mall.


2. Umbrella Bag Collection

If you put on an umbrella bag, then you need to take off.  This helps you to take it off easily!

 Why don't you try them in Japan where it invented!

“ Short but great ”

2 years ago Traveler: Joop -   Tour Guide: MARIKO

We planned Mariko for one day to guide us from out hotel in Tokyo to our Ryokan in Hakone and show us the highlights there. Upon our meeting in the hotel the first thing she had to tell us was the Ryokan in Hakone could not be reached due to the heavy snowfall. She helped us to make new plans for that day. She is very friendly, speaks good English and is a pleasant personality. Thanks Mariko!
