Japan has had school uniforms for around 150 years. They were first used to show which community a student belonged to, but today they have become one of the biggest symbols of Japanese kawaii culture. The sailor suit-style uniform came to Japan in 1920, followed in the 1980s by the arrival of school blazers.

Yo, aren't the skirts usually on the knee height?

When I was working at a elementary school for an summer program our shorts/shirts had to meet up to our fingertips (when our arms are on our sides). But people usually go like 1-2 inches shorter. It was never a problem until people wore booty shorts to work. I imagine the rules differ by cultural norms, or different school dress codes.

The ones that have long skirts are presumably in a gang or delinquents.

That was even the standard when I was in episcopal private school as a kid. Except our uniforms were 10x less comfortable because we had to wear vests (until high school). Though I ended up transferring to public during middle school so I never got to be rid of the dratted vests...
