Make a bold fashion statement with a sukajan, a heavily embroidered satin bomber jacket. Sukajan is the abbreviation for “Yokosuka Jumper,” a nod to the personalised MA-1 bomber jackets with distinctly Japanese embroidery worn by American soldiers at Yokosuka Base in the years after World War II.

In the past decade, the popularity of sukajan has revived, and there’s no shortage of the colors and patterns available in Japan. Sukajan are a unisex item that can be worn in a variety of ways, making them a unique addition to your wardrobe. Opt for a reversible sukajan to widen your fashion options.

 

 

Kanji T-Shirt

An attractive alternative to tattoos that won’t leave you with regret are t-shirts with kanji, or Chinese characters, emblazoned on them. Popular choices are the kanji for “Japan” (日本), “love” (愛) and “samurai” (侍).

When you buy a kanji t-shirt in Japan, you know what’s written on your t-shirt is genuine and authentic. You’ll have no doubt that when you buy a shirt for “cool,” it will indeed say “cool” and not “miso soup.”

And, if you are in fact looking for a kanji t-shirt that will help you proclaim your love for Japan’s national soup, there’s bound to be one out there somewhere. Just look for a shirt that says 味噌汁.

 

 

Toe Socks

You may already be familiar with the Japanese custom of removing one’s shoes before entering a home, shrine, or temple. Although slippers are worn in homes and set aside for guests, socks are an important accessory that allow you to put your best foot forward, so to speak.
