Okayama, Japan

Okayama, Japan

From Osaka, we went on a day trip to Okayama to visit Bobson Japan’s main headquarters. Kojima, Okayama is famous as the denim capital and true enough, you’ll find so many interesting places there like the Jeans Museum, Jeans Street and many more.

First stop when we arrived in Okayama: Bobson Japan office. We were lucky enough to be able to meet the president of the company, Mr. Hiroshi Ozaki. He talked about the brand’s history, explained everything we should know about Bobson and why it’s a very trusted brand when it comes to denim.

We asked him what the important things are about denim and he said that jeans aren’t supposed to be folded when hung and they shouldn’t be washed each time you use it. In fact, you shouldn’t be washing denim often.

When Marga from Philippine Star asked him what his favourite shirt and jeans are, he showed us this.

Even if Bobson Japan is known for denim, they also sell a lot of other items like shirts, jackets, vests, shorts and many more. During our interview with him, I could he see how passionate he was explaining his love for the company. Japanese people are known for being hard working and I admire how much he believes in his craft and work.

We had a quick lunch and went to Jeans street after. Here you’ll see so many types of denim- some I’ve never even heard of until I went there. Even their vending machines are denim themed!

Sadly, there were a lot of stores that were closed because we went on a weekday (and at a wrong time too), but I still enjoyed so much.

Mr. Hiroshi Ozaki showed me this antique shop that sells beautiful furniture on Jeans street. It just looks like a normal building outside but when you go inside…

We also visited Jeans Museum I and II. Inside the museum you’ll see so many nice jeans during the 1920s up until today’s time.

I also saw the original Levi’s 501. Cool.

I spy a Bobson piece! I saw this inside Jeans Museum II and fell in love with the color and style of this jacket.

Probably the largest/biggest pair of jeans I’ve even seen my entire life hahaha!

Yes, we went to so many places in Okayama because we know we were only going to be there for a day. Thank you so much Bobson Japan for inviting me on this trip. I learned so much about denim and had so much fun with the group.

Bobson Japan is now in the Philippines and is available in all leading department stores nationwide. BMS.
