How Long is the Skirt Length of Japanese School Girls?

The length of skirts depends on the region and trends. Some girls wear short skirts, and others wear long ones. This is the results of research conducted in 2017 regarding the length of skirts of 2,400 high school girls.(*1)

2 Between right above the knees
and 15 cm above the knees
593 24.7 %
3 Right above the knees 529 22.0 %
4 On the knees 520 21.6 %
5 Right below the knees 329 13.7 %

According to this article in “withnews”, the online news platform of the Asahi Shimbun, which is one of the main newspaper publishers in Japan.

The research shows the tendency of skirt length. Skirts are shorter in Tokyo and other metropolitan area, and longer in Osaka and Kobe. Even in Sapporo where the winter temperature gets below zero, girls wear short skirts without changing the length, although they wear stockings. I’ve lived in Tokyo and Osaka, and I do agree that skirts are shorter in Tokyo and longer in Osaka.
