*The aspect of these umbrellas varies in size, shape and colors. Here is a big red umbrella used to protect the head monk from the sun during the must see Chishaku-In Temple festival, held on June 15th. Visit the following site for great pictures and information on this temple and many others in Kyoto. Link to Chishaku-In. When Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana came to Kyoto Palace, a similar, but bigger red umbrella was used for their protection.
