Hello,

Could anyone interpret from this page what is the diameter of this umbrella when its canopy is open?

Sadly, I don't read Japanese.

It's a collaboration between Yoshida & Co's Porter label and Japanese umbrella maker Maehara Koei Shoten.

Thank you very much!

Google will always help you, takes all of 20 seconds.

This is what it has to say although the size of the canopy is not deemed important enough to state.:

"It is an original folding umbrella that I requested the production to a long-established umbrella maker "Maehara Koyoe shop" representing Japan.
We adopted original camouflage pattern of "Counter Shade" limited to PORTER OMOTESANDO · MARUNOUCHI · OSAKA on the main body of the umbrella. Craftsmen with exceptional skills from cutting, sewing to skeleton of fabric are carefully making one by one.
The attached umbrella bag of the same material was produced by a craftsman of Yoshida Bagan.

Kae Maehara shop
In 1948, it is a long established umbrella manufacturer representing Japan that was born in downtown Tokyo in more than half a century ago from now. I am committed to Made in Japan which made use of Nippon's craftsmen's technology. The wonderful umbrellas created using sophisticated parts such as umbrellas made of silk and batik dyed fabrics, umbrellas using natural wood as handy are also loved by the Imperial family and numerous well-known.

Hi @GBR, I already did that before opening this discussion. I used Google Translate and saw that the canopy diameter isn't mentioned, so I came here with the hopes of finding someone who's familiar with this umbrella and could specify its diameter when opened.

So, the question still stands. Anyone?

Thanks!
