Japanese School Uniforms: Army Style Uniforms

Figure 1.--

Japanese children mostly wore traditional clothing before World War I. Their teachers were ordered to wear Western clothing as a moderizing influence. Even before the War we begin to see some children in the cities wsearing Western cloyhing to school. Gradualy after the War we begin to see more more children wearing Western dress. By the 1930s almost all vhildren were wearing Western cloyhes and increasingly common for the primary boys as part of the militarization effort were wearing basic army uniforms. The secondary school boys wore cadet uniforms. This was a uniform determined decades earlier in the 19th century.
