If you understand the uniforms, you'll understand Japan. This text contains illustrations of 200 different uniforms, including public uniforms, private uniforms and school uniforms. Japanese uniforms are born from a variety of origins, such as points of western influence that come with modernization and elements of long-held Japanese tradition. Through these transitions, we can see the "nature of Japanese people" taking shape. Having worked with uniform illustrations for many years, Naoki Watanabe, reviewed an enormous volume of reference material and photographs to provide illustrations and diagrams from multiple sources that include information on historical background, functionality and more.
