Fun jeans street
Nov 2019
If you love all things denim you must visit.Kojima is the home of Japanese selvedge denim and the street is full of denim inspired things and denim stores. Please visit the Momotarro store that has the full range of Momotarro merchandise. The service is excellent and you should be able to find something to take home with you.

Fun street to shop in
Dec 2019 • Couples
Stumbled onto the jeans street, and it was pretty fun exploring the 3-4 shops. There’s even a shop that sells denim colored buns and ice cream. The jeans culture is strong in this area as textiles are a big feature here. Look for your next comfortable jeans, denim jacket or even neck tie!

Finally Found the place
Sep 2019 • Couples
On our last day in Okayama we decided after we had to purchase Japanese jeans.
We used our JR passes to get there after getting on the wrong train, after a couple corrections we finally got there in the mid afternoon. This is the place to buy Indigo Jeans. Because of bad navigation on our part we were only able to scratch the surface. We didn’t get past Big John which is one of the first stores. They actually close early at 5:00pm, so we only had a few hours.
Big John has a huge inventory of jeans and accessories. The knowledgeable sales staff is very friendly and helpful. We ended up buying a couple pairs each in that short time. Now we have to come back on our next trip to see the entire area which consists of most Japanese brands. There is even a museum at the end of the street. Take into consideration that they alter on the spot for no charge.
So buying jeans is not so simple. It’s time consuming.
Like other reviews it was quite slow on the street and void of tourists or buyers?

Denim head recommended
Jun 2019 • Family
It’s a short street full of denim and jeans shop. (Both local brands and international brands such as Momotaro and Big John)
If you wish to know how jeans is made or wish to find some jeans that perfectly suit you, I would recommend you to visit Kojima Jeans Street.
However, there’re very few people came here and the street is a bit quiet, you may feel it’s not interesting and boring.

If you want Japanese denim, this is the place.
Jun 2019 • Solo
To be honest I was a bit surprised at first at the lack of people around (it was a sunny Saturday afternoon) but as I started popping into the different shops there were serious denimhead customers in most of them. I had a great relaxing few hours checking out all the shops and in the end it not being so busy was actually a plus.

Like others have said, if you're into jeans you'll love this place. If not then you'll probably get bored pretty quickly! Don't forget Iron Heart jeans shop too which is not really on the jeans street itself - it's behind the large public parking lot on the main drag. If you're into Japanese denim then you'll already know all about the incredible quality (and prices to match)...if you don't know much about Japanese jeans then yeah, you'll probably be pretty shocked at the prices.

Overall I would say it's a must-see for serious denim lovers...but not really for anybody else.

Empty Street Regardless of Their Marketing Effort Or Was It Just Because of Obon Holidays
Aug 2018 • Family
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 many blue ice creams marketed like “Jeans Ice Cream,” “Denim Soft Cream,” and “Indigo Soft.” You might want to try them all to see which one is best. One place that I recommend you visit is the Big John Headquarters Building. You can experience some of the jeans damaging processes and learn how Kojima become “Fiber City” by watching the video. (The city used to make tabis (a kind of Japanese footwear) and school uniforms.)

Unique but unimpressed
May 2018 • Couples
I came here in the morning on a weekday. Upon leaving the train station, you can see rows of jeans of various shapes and sizes hanging overhead as you walk along the covered walkway out to the main street. That was pretty cute and a must-take-a-photograph thing to do! The Kojima Jeans Street is not too far away from the station, within walking distance. First thing you notice as you turn left into the street is the road surface. It's a blue-denim colour!
Further up the street, we saw more rows of jeans hanging overhead.
Perhaps the shops only opened in the afternoon, (11am when I arrived) or maybe it was a weekday, but most of the shops were closed. It was really quiet with only a few people on the street and hardly any business in the shops.

Saw the shop where they sold denim blue ice-cream! I did like the rest area and toilet which was very clean and well maintained.

Overall, it was a pretty boring tour of the street. If you're not a jeans fan, I'd suggest giving this street a miss.

Historical area and also to buy good jean
Apr 2018 • Couples
Access, was easy via JR to Kojima Station and it is about 15 minutes slow walk. Along the way, you will see a large shopping mall. Just obtain an area map from the JR Station staff. Very clear map.

The jean fabric is soft, stretchable and smooth. They also use the same material for purse, etc. They will also do "make to order". Worth a visit.

In this area are historical houses and also eatery, so you can relax mid way within the area.

Amazing and Unique Street
May 2018 • Couples
We were amazed by this street, from the hanging of jeans decoration to the toilet or even rest area for that matter. We visited almost all the shops that were open during this Golden Week holiday. Happily shop what we want though it is costly but paying for quality and uniqueness of “Made in Japan”.
