Photo Journal: Customized carp

Hiroshima Toyo Carp uniforms with designs and lettering requested by fans fill Une embroidery shop in Hiroshima's Naka Ward on Sept. 8, 2017. Ahead of the team's likely eighth Central League pennant and victory parades, the shop has already received over 1,000 orders this year to customize replica Carp uniforms. Fans can choose designs featuring the team's namesake fish, the "torii" gate of Hiroshima's famed Miyajima island and various set phrases, but original customization is also possible. Depending on the amount of decoration, a uniform can cost several thousand yen, and some enthusiasts even spend up to 80,000 yen on a single jersey. (Mainichi)
