Wagasa or Japanese umbrellas were first introduced to Japan from China at the beginning of the Heian period (794-1185).  The earliest form of wagasa umbrellas looked more like a straw hat and cape, and were worn less for rain protection than as a way to protect members of the imperial family and aristocrats from sunlight and evil spirits. However, by the late 14th century umbrellas had developed to the point where they looked much like the ones we know today.
