For a denim head definitely worth a visit, but for others I am not sure it is worth it. The area seems to be struggling - ghost town feeling with empty streets and shops. But if you are interested in denim, many fine shops.

Probably because I visited during the winter months, the streets are practically empty and deserted. Almost all of the shops are closed (97%), which makes me feel that the place is a bit over-rated. It took me 10 minutes to walk all the way from the Kojima train station just to browse through the 2 main streets, which takes less than 5 minutes to complete.

If you love all things denim you must visit.Kojima is the home of Japanese selvedge denim and the street is full of denim inspired things and denim stores. Please visit the Momotarro store that has the full range of Momotarro merchandise. The service is excellent and you should be able to find something to take home with you.

Basically you see plenty of stores selling jeans and most are priced ave 100-300 .

Else visit If you just want to take (Instagram/snapchat) photo of yourself being there doing tourist thingy

If none of the above is your type of activity, just look at multiple blog of the place and you save time and effort going there .

Stumbled onto the jeans street, and it was pretty fun exploring the 3-4 shops. There’s even a shop that sells denim colored buns and ice cream. The jeans culture is strong in this area as textiles are a big feature here. Look for your next comfortable jeans, denim jacket or even neck tie!

On our last day in Okayama we decided after we had to purchase Japanese jeans.
We used our JR passes to get there after getting on the wrong train, after a couple corrections we finally got there in the mid afternoon. This is the place to buy Indigo Jeans. Because of bad navigation on our part we were only able to scratch the surface. We didn’t get past Big John which is one of the first stores. They actually close early at 5:00pm, so we only had a few hours.
Big John has a huge inventory of jeans and accessories. The knowledgeable sales staff is very friendly and helpful. We ended up buying a couple pairs each in that short time. Now we have to come back on our next trip to see the entire area which consists of most Japanese brands. There is even a museum at the end of the street. Take into consideration that they alter on the spot for no charge.
So buying jeans is not so simple. It’s time consuming.
Like other reviews it was quite slow on the street and void of tourists or buyers?

It’s a short street full of denim and jeans shop. (Both local brands and international brands such as Momotaro and Big John)
If you wish to know how jeans is made or wish to find some jeans that perfectly suit you, I would recommend you to visit Kojima Jeans Street.
However, there’re very few people came here and the street is a bit quiet, you may feel it’s not interesting and boring.

To be honest I was a bit surprised at first at the lack of people around (it was a sunny Saturday afternoon) but as I started popping into the different shops there were serious denimhead customers in most of them. I had a great relaxing few hours checking out all the shops and in the end it not being so busy was actually a plus.

Like others have said, if you're into jeans you'll love this place. If not then you'll probably get bored pretty quickly! Don't forget Iron Heart jeans shop too which is not really on the jeans street itself - it's behind the large public parking lot on the main drag. If you're into Japanese denim then you'll already know all about the incredible quality (and prices to match)...if you don't know much about Japanese jeans then yeah, you'll probably be pretty shocked at the prices.

Overall I would say it's a must-see for serious denim lovers...but not really for anybody else.

They try to market Kojima as “Fiber City” and a couple of streets near JR Kojima Station as “Kojima Jeans Street.” Maybe due to the Obon Holidays, some of the shops were closed and the streets were rather quiet and were not crowded. There are many blue ice creams marketed like “Jeans Ice Cream,” “Denim Soft Cream,” and “Indigo Soft.” You might want to try them all to see which one is best. One place that I recommend you visit is the Big John Headquarters Building. You can experience some of the jeans damaging processes and learn how Kojima become “Fiber City” by watching the video. (The city used to make tabis (a kind of Japanese footwear) and school uniforms.)

I came here in the morning on a weekday. Upon leaving the train station, you can see rows of jeans of various shapes and sizes hanging overhead as you walk along the covered walkway out to the main street. That was pretty cute and a must-take-a-photograph thing to do! The Kojima Jeans Street is not too far away from the station, within walking distance. First thing you notice as you turn left into the street is the road surface. It's a blue-denim colour!
Further up the street, we saw more rows of jeans hanging overhead.
Perhaps the shops only opened in the afternoon, (11am when I arrived) or maybe it was a weekday, but most of the shops were closed. It was really quiet with only a few people on the street and hardly any business in the shops.

Saw the shop where they sold denim blue ice-cream! I did like the rest area and toilet which was very clean and well maintained.

Overall, it was a pretty boring tour of the street. If you're not a jeans fan, I'd suggest giving this street a miss.
