|Local school's uniform.|
It is a very common sight in Japan to see children in public, private, and International Schools wear uniforms. Most children from preschool through High School and even some women's colleges require students to wear school uniforms. While the sailor uniform used to be a very popular uniform for girls, most kids around where we live, or that I see on the train, wear a parochial-style uniform that includes the following:
- Yochien (Kindergarten) girls- pinafore, shirt, socks, jacket and hat.
- Yochien (Kindergarten) boys- shorts, shirt, suspenders, socks, jacket and hat.
- Elementary/High School girls- pleated skirts, white shirt, tie, blue or white socks that go mid-way up the calf, loafers, and sweater or blazer with school crest.
- Elementary/High School boys- dress pants, white shirt, tie, blazer with school crest.
