Japanese School Rules

  • Kindergarteners should be barefoot.
  • You must travel to school in uniform and then change into your P.E. uniform upon arrival. You must wear a helmet when riding a bike. Still, you may not ride your bike on the streets, only in the park.

In secondary school, new rules focus on appropriate appearance:

  • You must wear socks.
  • Sweaters may not be worn on the way to and from school because they create a sloppy appearance. You must wear your jacket over the top of any shirt or sweater.
  • Only third year students are allowed to carry school bags.
  • A girl’s fringe cannot extend past her eyebrows.
  • A boy’s hair should be kept short enough in the back that it does not reach the nape of his neck.
  • No romantic involvements.
  • You may not wear more than one good luck bracelet.
  • A boy’s hair must be trimmed close to his ears. Hair may not be cut to contain layers. And, no hair styling is permitted, specifically no hair wax.
  • Shoes cannot have wooden soles.
