I love these cool umbrellas so we decided to launch the Genki Umby Photography Contest! It is simple to join. Just send me a creative photo of the Genki Umbrella via email. I will be posting all the photos I received in OAP. My wife and I will decide the most creative photograph (captions would help). We have a surprise gift to the person who would have the craziest and coolest photo.

Thanks to Jane for sending the first Genki Umby Photo!

The Genki Umbrella is a significant item during my almost 1-month stay in Japan. It was light to carry around the huge park and just big enough to cover me thus letting me enjoy the rain without getting wet. Attached is a photo of me using a Genki Umbrella during a drizzling visit to Ritsurin Park. ” – Jane of Between Bites

  1. hello, anton!i’ve been reading your blog since…i can’t remember when (heheee)! πŸ™‚ i like it when you feature places, services offerred/rendered, and of course the food! hay naku please tell me how can i avail of at least 1 Genki umbrella! when i first read abopt it in your blog, i thought – well, another umbrella! just another umbrella! and now, maybe, the constant image of it in your blog whenever i check got stuck in my memory so now i just gotta have one!
    how can i get 1? pls!

  2. I bought 2 of these when I was in Japan last year. They’re so lightweight and nice to look at, unfortunately they were no match for HK’s strong winds, especially in Lantau Island near the Big Buddha, where I ahd to say sayonara to one of them. My mom-in-law left the other one at a store in Shenzhen. Like I said, they weigh next to nothing so it’s easy to forget them! Sayang, I would have liked to join the contest. πŸ™‚

  3. hi anton,

  18. Hi Anton,I’m Linda.I received a genki umbrella thru your mom.I like it…it’s cute and easy to carry! Hope to meet you at Avenue Q, thanks a lot.

  19. How interesting that something considered cheap and tasteless in another country is considered stylish in another country!

  20. cathy named is also interesting something like you could not ‘understand’ your own self lol! philippines appreciate cheap and tasteless products of foreign countries{just in your ‘disturb’ personnal opinion] coz philippines do not see those foreign countries producing this products to be tasteless as a whole country in general..playing mind games as business tricks to break down other ‘cultures’ products publicly in a derogatory expressions is NOT AT ALL A GOOD THING coz when it rains typhoons floods storms philippines do not descriminate coz getting RAIN WET means getting wet NO MATTER what equations you’ll try that is the NOT SO MYSTERIOUS as you portray lol! good luck to you cathy hope your math class will be reviewed coz if youre an engieneer or a scientist surely youre one scientist that will scare us all since simple social solving applications is hard for you to ‘uncover’ even to ‘understand’ lol!

  21. To Manners Police:
    Better learn your grammar after taking your manners/ethics class. Your writing is quite sloppy.
    By the way, those umbrellas are made in China and Japan imports them.
    If you are trying to start a debate, better not volunteer yourself as the speaker since you will be the downfall of your team. You writing reflects how illogical you are.
    And I have a master’s degree in social science plus the fact that I came from a science high school.
    Lastly, have you heard that people are entitled to their opinion?
    Your use of “lol” suits you. You just forgot to type “u” .

  22. lol! illogical grammar yes cathy i heard about the rights to opinions coz besides us.. all patients in any mental asylums has one lol..all those criminal lawyers{defenders}has criminal cases opinions just like politicians and all jail inmates has one too lol..i just cannot see any possibilities that a single country will ‘all’ love transparent ‘plastic’ umbrellas coz if they are hiding in cases of private detectives o NBI agents.. why would they even consider exposing themselves in rainy seasons in front of a job ‘subject’ lol or spouses having a wet season affairs & parade themselves in a STYLISH transparent umbrellas so they get caught beaten scandalized sued or imprisoned lol! it is a funny thought just to be stylish lol!

  23. cathy! you win!!!
    i’m so bothered that few is giving you a hand..a ‘support groups’ coz obviously you are in the ‘position’ that ‘needs helping’ hands.. mate is right! we will call more support groups for you.

  24. ohmygod!! i’ve been raving about that transparent umbrella since i saw it in nikki gil’s music video (gotta go my own way)!!!!!!!!!!! gosh!!! i would really like to have one:)) but if there’s nothing left to give away:( can i just ask for the price?:)

  25. wow! genki umby i saw one during the pringles run, and i would be happy to have one too. i find it so kewl!!! hope you still got some.. *crossing my fingers*

  26. anton, is this genki umbrella the same as the one you are giving me for free?im so sorry i wasnt able to meet up with you last May somewhere in the fort bonifacio area…i hope you were still able to “reserve” my umbrella…many many thanks!

  27. wow! only for 99 bucks. i was looking for something like this at divisoria, but FORTUNATELY wala akong nabili coz i was destined to buy your genki umbrellas pala! hehe.
