Views of Japan

Views of Japan you won't find in guide books!

Fake “sheep skin” Ugg boots. Supposedly made in Australia from sheep skin, these boots are actually made in China from synthetic material. The white interior is actually just polyester wadding.   I’ve seen these for sale in many places in Japan. The Japanese, generally not knowing what sheep skin feels/looks like, buy them and pay through the nose - believing they are buying Australian made sheep skin Uggs.
EDIT: In response to those who pointed out the Emu Australia website claiming these are Australian made and made from sheep skin; the items here in Japan for sale, as shown in my photos, are NOT made in Australia nor are they sheep skin. Tags inside the boots clearly state MADE IN CHINA. The materials are clearly NOT natural let alone sheep skin.
