View topic - I'm not too clear on this...
I am going to be an exchange student in Japan (although with only 2 years under my belt!) and I was wondering about the school uniforms. I am female, so would it be totally taboo if I did'nt want tp wear a skirt? I would much rather wear pants. Would people think I was really weird or something??
Also, will an american DVD play in a japanese DVD player? Also! How about ps2 games? If I get a japanese one will it work?
Just some things I wasn't too clear on, thanks in advance!

I don't know about the school uniforms, but unless someone has a better answer, you may wish to check with the school you are attending as to what exactly their dress code is, if pants would even be allowed for a female student. Because what I am finding online seems to imply that pants would not be permissable.

There are many Japanese girls who don't want to wear skirts.
But I've never seen school girls who wear pants as their school uniforms.
So, I think they accept it unpleasant and you have to be patient a little, too.

However... the students all had gym uniforms as well (usually cotton pants and a zip up jersey for winter, and a t-shirt and shorts for summer), and often the students (boys and girls) would wear them during English class (and, I'm sure, other classes... but I never attened those). I don't know what the rules will be about that, though--I never asked the kids or teachers about it.
