The public facilities in Japan are mostly equipped with an umbrella stand with locks or the device to semi-automatically cover the umbrella with a vertically long plastic bag.

The umbrella stand like the one in the first picture is usually found at the entrance of the public facilities in Japan. This kind of umbrella stand with locks may contribute to preventing umbrella theft and mix-up. In the case that there is not enough room to install this big umbrella stand, the unique device as shown in the second picture is found instead. This device is for covering the wet umbrella with a long plastic bag semi-automatically. Because the wet umbrella may wet other people with water in the public facilities. As Japan has relatively much rain and high temperature as well as humidity particularly in summer, a raincoat is uncomfortable. Accordingly these kinds of unique devices may be invented in Japan. These devices can be found recently in other countries in Europe and Asia.
