Bureaucrats Struggle With Clothes Names

Date Posted: 2000-05-19

A minor row has erupted concerning what to call the new dress code, recently introduced for local officials, taxi drivers and tour officials to wear in order to boost the local image.

When introduced a few weeks ago, the dress code featuring a loose open neck colorful shirt and khaki trousers was called “Kariyushi Wear” but now some would prefer to call it “Okinawa Wear” or simply “Tropical Wear.”

A meeting yesterday over the matter resulted in a decision to leave the verdict to the public. Participants decided to conduct a public survey over the matter over the next few weeks.

Okinawa Prefecture came up with a similar idea in 1979, and again in 1990. The dress code was called first “Okinawa Wear.” In 1990 Okinawa Prefecture came up with “Kariyushi Wear.” The Okinawa Hotel Association has called the code “Tropical Wear” for some years.
