I like the see-through brolly on the streets of Tokyo. People owning one and carrying everywhere they go with the knowledge that it would be a rainy day as forecasted by the weatherman. Then there are also others who are well aware of the availability of these brollies in the ubiquitous 24/7 convenience stores, and would only dropped by any one store to grab a brolly when it rains. In my opinion, these no-frills brollies are a better match for the clean city than any of those patterned ones. But personally, I will still carry my dark-colored brolly to stay away from the UV rays.
