Since its founding in the late Edo Period (19th century), hiyoshiya has been guided by the same philosophy "Tradition is continuing innovation" to breathe a new life into traditional crafts. Hiyoshiya's products inherit from five generations of expertise. They have been an instrumental part of Kyoto's international success, carrying forward the tradition and developing new products based on technologies used for the production of Japanese-style umbrellas.
