3. Students can go to school with personal wear

Many schools in Japan have to go to school with school uniforms every day. However, we can go to school in plain clothes. This is very rare in Japanese schools. Some athletic club students wear club team shirts and training the shirts, and some girls arrange uniforms by changing bow ties or skirts. Of course, each students has the Itami High School uniform for special occasions. We must wear our uniforms at ceremonies and at guest lectures.
