They try to market Kojima as “Fiber City” and a couple of streets near JR Kojima Station as “Kojima Jeans Street.” Maybe due to the Obon Holidays, some of the shops were closed and the streets were rather quiet and were not crowded. There are...More

Japan has its own denim industry and has had so for quite a while. Edwin is one of the familiar world wide brands and it all came from Kojima. Buy your denim colored ice cream, buy a jeans book, or a jeans bag.
