Japan is a country filled with various beliefs and practices deeply rooted in their rich history and culture. Because of the unique and rich cultural traditions that they continue to practice today, Japan has become one of the best countries to explore, embrace and learn from. It is not only the country and the culture itself that’s enchanting, but also the people’s thoughts and ideas.

They have made great strides in technology, media and more. They are capable of telling wonderful stories that capture life lessons while still complementing their very own culture through print and film. The Japanese culture, practices and traditions are very important in Japan, and it is good in touching the hearts and the lives of others, so much so that the country attracts thousands of tourists and enthusiasts around the world.

Japanese Style would like to further honor this great Japanese culture by offering wonderful Japanese items all inspired by the symbols, influences and elements of Japanese living and tradition. Our Japanese t-shirts are of no exception to these products as we always strive to create shirts with deep, intricate and artistic designs that truly showcase Japanese culture, symbolism and art.

Japanese Style currently offers four beautiful shirt designs to choose from.

Dragon design t-shirts

Japanese dragons has been considered legendary creatures in old and historic Japanese mythology and folklore. While Japanese dragons are purely inspired by the influence of Chinese culture, Japanese dragons are different as they are seen more as water deities responsible for rainfall and other bodies of water.

For our design, we tried to capture the beauty of this Japanese dragon. Our design is made on a black shirt that features a beautiful golden dragon with intricate metallic accents at the front of the shirt, as well as the back.

Koi design t-shirts

A pair of Koi fish in Japan symbolizes harmony. Our design features two Koi fishes colored red and metallic gold respectively. The back of the shirt also features the pair.

Yukimori design t-shirts

This t-shirt design incorporates one of the many artworks of Taiso Yoshitoshi. The print is a woodblock entitled “Yamanaka Shikanosuke Yukimori.” Yamanaka Yukimori was a famous Japanese Samurai during the Sengoku period who served the Amako clan of the Izumo Province. In our shirt design, it features the image of this famous samurai praying before he duels with Shinagawa Daisen in 1565.

This is a perfect choice for any of your friends who are interested in Japanese culture, and history, especially for those who are very fond of samurais.

Kanji design t-shirts

Kanji is Japan’s writing system adopted from logographic Chinese characters. For this shirt design, we used the kanji symbol for energy. The very color of this symbol is designed to mimic the color of fire. This is an excellent choice for those who prefer a simple, minimalistic yet meaningful design that showcases their love and deep interest in Japanese culture.

Our Japanese t-shirts are made with 100% cotton and are of good quality. These are just the first few t-shirt designs we have designed and made for our store. Gradually, we will continue to add more unique and interesting Japanese inspired designs for our customers.
