Uniqlo was the most shopped at apparel retailer in Japan according to GlobalData's Q3 2021 Consumer Survey, with 43.8% of Japanese consumers stating they had purchased clothing & footwear from it in the past 12 months.

Uniqlo Japan's revenue fell 10.2% to JPY442.5 billion in its H1 FY2021/22 (ending 28 February 2022), as the retailer struggled with supply chain challenges and came up against strong comparatives in the prior year.
