Why did I make this site ?


A few years ago I got a Momotaro Jeans, and was deeply impressed with the quality.

Then I was interested in jeans made in Japan, and went Okayama prefecture. There were many jeans maker in Okayama and each brand was very cool. I was attracted to those.

After that I read books and studied about jeans, and got a qualification of Jeans Sommelier operated by Okayama prefecture apparel industrial union and Kurashiki Fashion Center.

I Love Jeans made in Japan, and want more and more people to know those awesome jeans.
