Q: What do Japanese people wear?
A: The sad, I think, fact is that most people in Japan wear exactly the same clothes as the rest of the developed world! Teenage girls usually have really good fashion sense, but other than that working age guys all wear grey suits and everyone else wears jeans, t-shirts & coats!
If you want to see Kimono, or Yukata, then the best time to visit is 成人の日 – seijin no hi – adults day – in January where 20 year olds girls wear their best kimono. Or any of the big fireworks festivals during the summer where girls usually dress up in summer Yukata!
