Umbrella Sharing Service Switches to Brighter Design

The umbrella sharing service, Aikasa, debuted new umbrellas featuring a design that allows users to enjoy the blue sky painted inside. The environmentally-conscious service rents umbrellas for ¥70/24 hrs, helping users save the trouble of buying a new one when unexpectedly caught in the rain. Five hundred light-blue umbrellas are now available mainly in Tenjin and Hakata.Source: PR Times
