Betty Smith Jeans

One of Kurashiki Cities iconic jean makers.

By Judith Mikami    - 1 min read

Betty Smith Jeans Company can be found in Kojima Town, Kurashiki City. There are many jeans and textile companies in Kojima and if you have the time I would recommend you catching the jeans bus to visit as many as you can. What makes Betty Smith special is the jeans museum that is attached to the factory. Here you can not only get some custom made jeans but you can see the history of jeans in Japan.

Hi, I’m Judith Mikami originally from Auckland, New Zealand. I came to Japan about twenty years ago to experience a culture and country very different from my homeland. Like many who have ventured to Japan I fell in love with the people, culture and places and before I knew it I would meet my husband. I have lived only in Okayama Prefecture and call this area my home away from home.
