I heard that the Uniform skirt length is 4~5 centimeters longer for 20 years, but it's not a "personal adjustment" regards the uniform and after school dressing, so it isn't quite a big change about the skirt length of "designation uniform"?

Then, is Metropolitan area also a similar trend with Tokyo and Okinawa.
