  • Japanese School Bag Sports Type Navy+Gray
    Here's a great item from Japan, an authentic Japanese school bag for carrying books or any other items you need with you, as seen in pretty much every anime ever. The bag is very sturdy, with a flat bottom for carrying books and other things without them moving around, and the woven nylon straps secure it perfectly around your shoulder, just like characters do in anime. A great bag, whether you're looking for a unique school bag or laptop bag, or if you're planning an epic cosplay and need the bag as an accessory. The bag features one large pocket that holds A4 or 8.5 x 11 sized papers, and there is a separate section for securing smaller objects including pens, cell phone, etc. There is a nylon ring attached, allowing you to carry your favorite keyholder, plush toy, etc. made of polyester. Note: if you want to carry a laptop computer with this bag you should have a soft sleeve for it, as there is no specific laptop section for the bag.

Traditional yet stylish. 100% Cotton. This purchase is for the Japanese 2L/LL size and random color jinbei.

  • UWABAKI White -- Japanese School Shoes
    Instead of wearing shoes in the house or walking around in socks or bare feet, it is common for Japanese to wear slippers called uwabaki around the house, especially for guests.
