The Japanese school bag, or Randoseru, is the staple of elementary education in Japan. Kids get one robust randoseru and use it from the time they enter 1st grade to the day they graduate 6th grade. They are one of the most unique features of the Japanese education system.
But the love for the Randoseru doesn’t have to end with elementary school though, as companies such as the Hako have begun to make these unique Japanese backpacks for adults too. Stylish and beautiful, we got to try them out for ourselves and see if they fit into our daily lives. Here it goes — we’re trying out some Randoserus for grown-ups on Life in Japan!
