These Japanese umbrellas at first glance may seem to be just a regular way to stay dry during a rainstorm, but once they become wet, they reveal a whole different aspect.

By using a combination of both water-absorbing and repelling coatings, these unique umbrellas when wet show off hidden patterns. Instantly stand out in the rain with a variety of patterns available that only reveal themselves when the weather turns foul.

A number of different patterns and symbols on these Japanese umbrellas are available once moisture is applied, depending on individual preference. A standout example that pays tribute to this unique innovation's country of origin is a pink umbrella that reveals a Japanese cherry blossom pattern made from water.
