Japan has its own denim industry and has had so for quite a while. Edwin is one of the familiar world wide brands and it all came from Kojima. Buy your denim colored ice cream, buy a jeans book, or a jeans bag.

It's interesting but don't prioritize it unless you want to buy Kojima jeans/jean products. They're pretty expensive.
