Japan is the only place I've ever been where women use parasols! On a recent sunny day, I saw many women using them. Here, in contrast to in the U.S., people like to keep their skin white, and many women use "whitening cream" on their face.
In addition to parasols, people also use gloves, etc., for UV protection. Such contrast to our current attitude toward the sun in the U.S., although we too used parasols not so long ago. Nonetheless, I still love being in the sun!
