Written by rina

Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai event where the official uniforms were unveiled for the first time.

Finally, it’s less than a year until the opening of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan.
With “1 Year to Go” events being held everywhere, did you know that staff and volunteer uniforms were made public? This time, I’m going to tell you about the official uniforms that will be used at the Expo !


Staff uniforms selected from 513 entries

The uniforms for the staff of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan are based on the color white, while the T-shirts use the SDGs colors of red, green, and blue. The design conveys a sense of brightness and fun, while maintaining a clean taste. In fact, the inner shirt worn under the T-shirt is also part of the uniform set.

Official uniforms for staff

Staff are free to choose the color of their T-shirt, and both women and men can select pants or a long skirt for bottoms. The new normal of men wearing long skirts gives a sense of anticipation for novel discoveries to come .

To sum it up, the way these designs adopt a diversity standpoint by being inclusive of all ages and genders is just as you’d expect. MYAKU-MYAKU on the chest totally stands out, for a feel that’s very unique to the Expo.
It is no wonder that it was chosen out of 513 entries (369 applicants)!


Excellent functionality and durability, environmentally friendly

There are also official uniforms for operations, cleaning, and medical staff.

There are also official uniforms for Association staff, and all the uniforms have excellent heat protection, comfort, functionality, and durability.
Since the Expo will be held from April 13 to October 13, 2025, there will naturally be some hot days. It’s important for the staff moving around the site to have the uniforms to pull off a perfect performance!

Not only that, but the uniforms are perfectly environmentally friendly: the white-looking uniforms for medical staff use wood thread made from materials obtained through forest thinning, and other uniforms use plant-derived materials too. They’ll be reused in various ways after the Expo ends, so they’re also spot on in their consideration of sustainability.


Uniforms were first unveiled at an event one year ago

The official uniforms were unveiled in a fashion show at the “1 Year to Go Before the Opening of the Expo Event ~Towards a brighter future for all~,” held in Tokyo on April 13.

The event featured talk sessions by eight Expo Theme Project producers, with each presenting the status of the thematic Signature Project they are preparing. In addition to video messages from Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Ambassador Shinya Yamanaka, and Senior Advisors Katsura Bunshi and Junko Koshino, actor Munetaka Aoki and QuizKnock’s Takushi Izawa hastened to the scene, making the event a great success.

And Myakmyak, the official character of the Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan, made headlines when he spoke for the first time, saying “konnichiwa” (hello)!
Will MYAKU-MYAKU continue to speak?


Uniforms for volunteers with simple design

On April 22, the uniforms worn by volunteers were also unveiled.
Volunteer uniforms come in navy and gray or navy and yellow, and include a T-shirt, vest, hat, and pochette.

The navy blue base color is the color of one of the SDGs, “Partnership for the goals .” It’s fitting for the Expo volunteers from a wide range of generations, whose role is to connect people from around the world.
By the way, the navy blue and gray uniforms will be worn by volunteers active within the Expo site. The navy blue and yellow design is for volunteers active in urban areas, and it’s made to catch the eye even in places with lots of people coming and going, like stations and airports.

Now that the uniforms have been unveiled, the Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai is becoming more and more visible. Just as we have adopted the colors of the SDGs for our uniforms, we hope that the Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan will be a catalyst for a bright future for all people, coloring the world in a variety of colors. To that end, let’s all work together to make Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai a success!
