The Japanese high school uniform traditionally consists of a military style uniform for boys and a sailor dress (sailor fuku) for girls. The uniforms are based on Meiji era formal military dress, themselves modelled on European-style naval uniforms.
The school uniform is an established part of Japanese life. Stylized school uniforms are prominent for instance in the Japanese comic Sailor Moon, or in Card Captor Sakura. Different schools in Japan are known for their particular uniform.
