Japanese clothing chain Uniqlo now selling flowers online

By Katie Pask, SoraNews24

Japanese clothing chain Uniqlo is known around the world for their stylish yet casual clothing, but did you know that at some Uniqlo stores, you can also buy bunches of fresh flowers? The service is called Uniqlo Flower, and has been available at certain branches of Uniqlo since 2020.

Now, the company have decided to extend the service to its online store, and customers in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba prefectures can order bouquets to be delivered straight to their home.


The line-up of bouquets includes your regular arrangements like carnations and roses, as well as monthly bouquets containing seasonal flowers (November’s seasonal flower is Texas bluebell).

Including shipping, the bouquets cost between 1,490 and 1,590 yen and any orders placed before midday will qualify for next day delivery. Should no delivery date be specified, the bouquets will arrive within three days of orders being placed.


You might be thinking “Really? Flowers from Uniqlo?” and to be honest, we were thinking the same. So we decided to order some for ourselves to see if they were any good, and went with some yellow roses and Baby’s-breath. 

Included in the bouquet were five large yellow roses and a stalk of Baby’s-breath, and the colors were really vibrant!


Despite arriving in a box, the flowers looked really fresh and had a really beautiful scent. It was if we’d just bought them at a flower shop ourselves that very morning.


It appeared the secret to keeping the flowers fresh in transit was this ‘eco-jelly’ substance at the base of the bouquet wrapping.


All in all, we were really impressed with the quality of the Uniqlo Flower bouquet. The flowers looked fresh and vibrant, and it smelled amazing. At just 1,490 yen it’s around the same price you’d expect to pay at a florist, and there’s also the added bonus of the feeling of excitement that comes when opening the box, which you can’t get from brick and mortar flower shops.


If you want to add a few more florals in your daily life, or are looking for a simple gift for friends, check out Uniqlo Flower.

Just be aware than any orders that are not received by the buyer within two days will be returned to Uniqlo and no refunds will be given, so you’ll want to make sure you’re at home to receive the delivery.

It is interesting to see the article on fossil fuel, then this.

Uniqlo, H&M, Zara are the 3 big fast fashion that produce millions of millions of tons of waste then millions of ton of more waste in trashed clothing 90% of which it worn only a few times a put in the trash by the very people that go on and on about climate change and the environment.

These companies produce so much poor quality stuff that charities now refuse to even take the junk because it cost too much to dispose of it all.

But tell that to these youths and they will comeback with something about me being old and not waiting to give up me gas gusling F150 (which I had to look up because I had no idea what a F150 was, turns out it is a pickup truck I have never owned a pickup truck)

But I guess the new iPhone every year, news clothes every season, WiFi everything, generation knows better than the old guy that only puts something in the trash once it no longer works.

So I guess we shouldn't be surprised that that same fast fashion generation also can't be bothered to go buy flowers and chose them personally.

Only time I would order flowers would be a funeral or business opening, otherwise I will go out and choose the flowers I am going to give especially for my wife, mother or daughter.

Very nice, good for Uniqlo..

Flowers are not made, they are cultivated, and if it were in China, what is the problem with trade between the two countries??..

Tantrums everywhere..
