What is “souvenir”?
Souvenir is a word that generally refers to souvenirs and souvenirs.
In Japan, the souvenir jacket (sukajan) is famous as an item that uses the word "souvenir."
After World War II, American soldiers who were stationed around Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture as part of the Allied Forces occupying Japan used Oriental patterns such as eagles, tigers, and dragons as souvenirs, or their belongings. It is said to have originated from local tailor shops ordering embroidery designs with emblems of stages, bases, etc.
After the war, it became popular among American soldiers as the ``souvenir jacket,'' a play on the word ``souvenir,'' which means souvenir.
The ``Embroidered Souvenir Shirt'' developed by ``Houston'' is a short-sleeved rayon shirt with the oriental embroidery that was used on the ``Souvenir Jacket'' at the time.
