Weird Japanese Devices: Vegetabrella

What do you get when you put a vegetable and an umbrella together?

I found this site Japan Ichiban that is an online shop for cool things from Japan. I particularly like this vegetable umbrella and will probably by this for my mom to take back to her for Christmas this year. It is fun to browse through the different items since they have sourced them from around the country and the site is pretty easy to use. My friend Nicolas Soergel is the person who runs this site and I bet you could contact them directly to see if they could get something particular that you would like to have. http://www.anything-from-japan.com
