Kariyushi wear gains support, popularity

Date Posted: 2001-05-25

The Environment and Sanitary Association of Hotels and Pensions in Okinawa announced Thursday the results of a survey the use and acceptance of so-called “Kariyushi wear,” a shirt similar to the Hawaiian “Aloha” shirt.

The association conducted the survey in about two hundred firms between April and May. The survey found that only half a percent of the companies have decided not to adopt the wear at all. But for the first time, more than forty percent answered that they would like to wear it at some point. At the same time, the refusal of the wear decreased to 3.9 percent from 24.2 percent in ’99.

The association concluded that Kariyushi wear has become a fixed feature in Okinawan business life, and said that an effort should be made is to develop wider selection of designs and prices.
