Mobu’s umbrellas are simple in colors, somewhat reminding customers of traditional Japanese umbrellas from old ages, yet their functionality and design are world’s top class. For example, Mobu’s umbrellas made with 24 ribs are world’s first products. Compared to the regular umbrellas with only 8 ribs, ones with 24 ribs certainly add durability and prevent them from flipping over in heavy wind. Using a lightweight fiberglass for the ribs keep the umbrellas light and easy to use even for women. In addition to the regular 8 ribs, 16 ribs, and 24 ribs umbrellas, Mobu also sells various umbrellas for specific purposes, such as ones you can carry hands-free, ones specifically made to withstand during heavy rainfall, ones that come with cases for easy portability during commute, and ones made to cut 99.9% of UV rays for sunny days.

The store is open from 12 pm to 2 pm and from 3 pm to 7 pm from Tuesdays through Sundays, and closed on Mondays.
